Bob Fowler, steel sculptor, dies

by Bill Davenport November 9, 2010

Houston sculptor Bob Fowler is dead at age 79. Fowler, best known for his sculpture of African Elephants outside the Hosuton Zoo, leaves behind many large-scale works in metal throughout the city: two horses at Jones Hall, a swimmer in front of La Colombe D’or Hotel on Montrose Boulevard; a 20-foot abstract piece at the entrance to The Woodlands; a 12-foot abstract animal likeness at the Texas Medical Center; an abstracted scene of a longhorn fighting a cougar outside the Student Center at the University of Houston. A memorial service will be held Dec. 4 at St. Thomas High School.
