Great Blue Heron

 

"The Great Blue Heron," Hollis Williford (1940-2007)

Bronze (Installed September 2003)

Location: Keller Town Hall, 1100 Bear Creek Parkway

Sponsor: Keller Public Arts Board

About the Artist
Hollis Williford was born into a farming family in North Central Texas and studied at the University of Arlington, North Texas University, and the Art Center College of Art & Design in Los Angeles. Though Williford worked in pencil, oils and etchings, he was best known for his bronze sculptures.  When asked about this artwork, Hollis replied, "I'm celebrating living forms in motion. The research is the fun part, about a third of what is necessary. The difficult part is translating dynamic action into a three-dimensional artwork. A lot of my subjects feature such dynamic action; but it's even harder to achieve subtle, graceful motion."
