The Patience S. Latting Northwest Library at 5600 NW 122 has a new array of sculptures outside the building. They were unveiled this week.
The sculptures are the work of California artist Solomon Bassoff of Faducci Studio. One of the sculptures is of native Oklahoman Lucille Mulhall, a rodeo performer at the turn of the 20th century. She is seen toting books by Oklahoma authors Joy Harjo, S.E. Hinton, Louis L'Amour and Michael Wallis.
The other sculptures are of official Oklahoma animals including the raccoon, the state's official furbearing animal; a collared lizard, the state's official reptile; and a saurophaganax, the state's official fossil.
