touch the clouds



“Touch the Clouds” is an 18-foot-tall sculpture with a 15-foot-wide wingspan that is currently displayed at the Houston Astrodome, which is about to be demolished. The city purchased the statue for $90,000 from the Houston Livestock Rodeo Association. This figure includes transportation costs with the stipulation that the artwork is in acceptable condition when it arrives.
The sculpture was created by the late internationally known sculptor Dave McGary. “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. ~Edmond Sun

The City of Edmond, OK has over 150 pieces in its public art collection. This statue was just added a couple of weeks ago and sits at the entrance to University of Central Oklahoma.

Do you happen to know how many pieces were created for the series?
