Most Long-awaited, Overdue Public Sculpture

Martin Luther King Jr. Sculpture at UT

After 12 years, the hard work of a group of UT students has finally paid off. Their effort to diversify the subjects of statuary on the UT campus has been realized with the unveiling of the Martin Luther King Jr. statue, sculpted by husband-and-wife team Jeffrey and Anna Koh-Varilla, on the East Mall. Here's a symbol, at long last, wrought from material fit to suggest the strength of this great champion of peace and equal rights.
