Katy Freeway Just Got More Interesting…

Picture originally uploaded by Hugotepic

I’m psyched..Houston-based sculptor David Adickes recently unveiled his 36-foot-tall sculptures of the Beatles. Currently the sculptures sit in front of SculpturWorx Studio on Summer Street near I-10 but will be moving in the next few months toward the Katy Freeway near North Shepherd in order to be more visible to drivers.
The sculptures roughly weigh 10 tons and are made from white cement on steel.

On a side note, recall the huge Sam Houston statue that sits on I-45 when you’re heading out to Dallas? David Adickes is the sculptor behind that as well!

    I have been by the warehouse periodically watching them take shape and wondering where they were headed. Very cool.
