Guns, Paganism Plague Public Art in Texas

by Bill Davenport June 18, 2011

You can’t please everybody: separate sculptural commissions in Fort Worth and Lubbock are each hitting snags as public wrangling over their content, from both ends of the political spectrum: the Vaquero slated to be installed on Main St. near the historic Stockyards in Fort worth is toting a holstered gun; the iconic “Windy Man” reliefs that once symbolized Lubbock along the Marsha Sharp Freeway are back, after being defaced due to their “paganism.” We have to agree to disagree, or we’ll be left with nothing but Jesus Moroles!
