Nikon D-70 & Various Portr...
This, from the 2007 Houston Livestock and Rodeo Media Guide: Created by Cowboy Artist Hall of Fame member and Show Lifetime Director Mark Storm in 1993, the bronze, “H. Stuart Lang Jr.,” commemorates Lang’s legacy with a rendition of the Astrodome, Astrohall and Astroarena at the foot of the statue. Lang served as the Show’s president from 1963 to 1966 and was instrumental in the Show’s move to the complex. He currently serves on the Show’s Executive Committee.
There are eight statues in the Carruth Plaza and all of them are unique and extraordinary.
This, adapted from the 2007 Houston Livestock and Rodeo Media Guide regarding Carruth Plaza: Amid native Texas landscaping and decomposed granite pathways, a collection of large-scale bronzes from the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ call Carruth Plaza at Reliant Park home. Located in a prime location between Reliant Astrodome and Reliant Stadium, just south of Reliant Center, the Plaza was made possible due to a grant from The Wortham Foundation, Inc. Named after Allen H. “Buddy” Carruth, who served as president of both The Wortham Foundation and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Carruth Plaza serves as a tribute to the renowned Houston philanthropist who dedicated many hours to serving the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and the people of Harris County. In addition to naming the Plaza in his honor, a special Carruth Circle features an obelisk topped by a Smithsonian Armillary Sphere. In their space, the sculptures are surrounded by a tranquil setting that includes a flowing stream and “Texas heritage-style” landscaping, with such native Texas plants as cactus, yuccas and live oak trees. With trees and curved limestone walls behind most of the Western art sculptures, areas of seating are placed in close proximity to each work of art for maximum enjoyment.
Taken on a very hot weekend in Houston using a Nikon D70 camera and a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens.
