Giant Barack Obama bust stops in Austin - 20-foot tall concrete sculpture makes stop on way to Presidents Park in South Dakota.
By Claire Osborn AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF Monday, June 08, 2009

President Barack Obama's concrete head rested peacefully on an open-bed trailer outside Vino Vino wine bar on Guadalupe Street on Sunday evening. The 20-foot tall sculpture of the president had just been hauled from Houston (note: we shot this image at Adickes' Houston studio late in afternoon the Saturday before this article was written).

Its creator, 82-year-old artist David Adickes, is traveling with the 3½-ton bust and grinned as he looked at the head as it was parked on the street. "Most people just ogled it on the highway," he said. "Only one guy gave us the finger."

The sculpture began a 30-city tour Friday in Pearland, near Houston, and will end up in Presidents Park near Deadwood, S.D., joining the other 42 giant-size presidential busts Adickes has already made. He said he hopes to make it to Mount Rushmore by June 18 before taking it to the park he owns. Other cities on the tour include Fort Worth, St. Louis, Chicago, Minneapolis and Milwaukee.
