Bob Wade Saxophone Sculpture approved by City Council

The Arts Commission unanimously voted to recommend to the City Council accepting the Saxophone as a gift through the Art in Public Places Program. The motion was pending fundraising by PSOA and specific site location through city staff. The City Council vote was 7-0.

The 60-foot sculpture, simply called “Giant Saxaphone”, was created by Austin artist Bob Wade, who has been creating Texas-themed artwork for years.

The sculpture is being donated by Houston resident Stuart Kensinger.
