Scott Sustek’s “Working Cowboy”, an over-life-sized sculpture of a waving man with a rope and saddle, was installed outside San Angelo on highway 87 near the intersection of Bryant Boulevard and Third Street last week. The 1500+ pound bronze piece cowpoke gestures towards downtown, and was sponsored by Art in Uncommon Places, a local nonprofit begun by art teachers Julie Raymond and Sue Rainey, that champions the placement of art in outdoor spaces.
Sustek, a fan of tight figurative portraiture and occasional corny caricature, also made a life sized bronze portrait of a seated Laura Bush for her library in Austin in 2009.
