Texas Legacy, Bronze, 20" x 40" x 11.5"©


A resident of Glen Rose, Texas, Robert Summers is the creator of numerous public art projects including the world's largest bronze for the Pioneer Plaza at the Dallas Convention Center. It has seventy longhorn steers and three horses and riders on a cattle drive. Completed in the mid 1990s, it took him two and a half years.

As a child, he took art lessons and was inspired by his father, a Frederic Remington buff. In his 20s, he worked with the Texas Highway Department and then with General Dynamic Aircraft, while working part time as an artist. Finally a patron supported him for full time art.
