Gov. Brad Henry’s bust
I’m talking about his statue, people. Minds out of the gutters, please and thank you. Gov. Brad Henry will join the illustrious Hall of Governors, which is kind of a boring room. So hopefully Henry’s bust will liven the place up as much as Carlos Tello’s painting “Beyond the Centennial.” Here’s a press release from the Oklahoma Arts Council:
The official bronze bust of Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry, the state’s 26th Governor will be unveiled on January 4, 2011 during a dedication ceremony at the State Capitol. Hosted by the Oklahoma Arts Council and the State Capitol Preservation Commission the ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. in the Hall of Governors located in the southwest corner on the second floor of the Capitol. The ceremony is open to the public.
Sculptor Paul Moore of Norman was commissioned to craft the bust, which will be added to a collection of Oklahoma governors’ busts on permanent exhibit in the Hall of Governors. The first 21 busts were produced as a commemorative project of the Oklahoma Diamond Jubilee, the 75th Anniversary of Oklahoma in 1982. Subsequent governors’ busts were produced and unveiled as each left office.
