City considers relocating Houston sculpture here
The Edmond City Council voted 5-0 to purchase a $250,000 bronze sculpture for no more than $90,000, a figure which includes transportation costs with the condition the artwork is in acceptable condition.
“Touch the Clouds” is a bronze sculpture located at the Houston Astrodome, which is about to be demolished, Shadid said. This piece is available for a $50,000 donation to the Houston Rodeo Livestock Association, plus additional costs for relocation.
Internationally known sculptor Dave McGary, who created the piece, died about three weeks ago, Shadid said. “Touch the Clouds” is part of his Warrior Series. The sculpture depicts a Miniconjou chief of the late 19th century, a cousin of the Sioux warrior, Crazy Horse, according to McGary’s website.
His artwork has been placed overseas and “Touch the Clouds” is recognized as one of McGary’s significant pieces of art, Shadid said.
Lankford wary of Iran negotiations
An historic agreement that Secretary of State John Kerry has made with Iran concerning its nuclear enrichment program drew concern from Congressman James Lankford. Lankford spoke Tuesday at a town hall meeting at the University of Central Oklahoma.
Kerry said Tuesday that the United States will work toward reaching a final comprehensive agreement that ensures Iran will not acquire a nuclear weapon. An initial agreement stipulates that Iran’s current nuclear program must be peaceful, Kerry said.
“And that has to be absolutely verifiable,” Kerry said.
Diplomacy always should be used to avoid a war by resolving an issue, Lankford said.
“But my real concern on this issue with Iran is we’re going to release some of the sanctions, and release about $7 billion back into Iran for the promise of future action in Iran,” Lankford said. “Iran has not been good in keeping promises of future action.”
