NEA Funds Doris Miller Statue in Waco by Lubbock Sculptor Eddie Dixon

The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded the Waco Cultural Arts Fest (aka Cultural Arts of Waco) $15,000 for a statue honoring Waco resident and World War II serviceman Doris Miller (1919-43), the first African American to be awarded the Navy Cross for his heroism during the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack.  The figurative bronze sculpture and historical reliefs will be created by Lubbock sculptor Eddie Dixon and will be sited in Bledsoe-Miller Park.
