The City of Lewisville has entered into an agreement with Sanger artist David Iles to create and place a bronze sculpture of Wayne Ferguson in the plaza that bears his name in Old Town.

Placing a historic sculpture in Wayne Ferguson Plaza is one of the top recommendations in the Public Art Master Plan approved by City Council earlier this year. Iles was recruited by the Ferguson family for this project. Through his studio, Bolivar Bronze, he has successfully completed numerous large-scale outdoor sculptures.

The sculpture will depict Ferguson seated on the wall along the boardwalk, under the shade of a redbud tree, about 50 feet from the gateway off Charles Street. He will be wearing his favorite boots and hat while looking at a map of the plaza.

To one side will be a stack of rolled maps, representing the many projects Ferguson brought to Lewisville. On his other side will be a stack of personal items illustrating his life and character, including a saddle blanket, chaps, spurs, and his hand-made buck knife.

Total cost for the sculpture is set at $90,000 with a project timeframe of eight to 12 months.
