Pegasus Soars Again
During my stint as a broadcast TV editor I did a feature on the DALLAS SOARS! PEGASUS Project. This fund-raising effort for charity auctioned artist-decorated statues of the city’s mascot – the mythical flying horse PEGASUS.
Over one hundred fiberglass statues-in-white, and a single red pegaso for Peter Max, were decorated by artists sponsored by Dallas businesses and philanthropists. These were to be displayed as street art in various locations around the city.
I always felt that the unadorned white statues were far more attractive than any of the “finished” products. Years later I met Ken Robison, the Texas sculptor who created who created these wonderful fantasy horses.
To my amazement Ken had no website showing his highly varied work. As a token of my admiration for Ken and for Pegasus I created this simple portfolio site. The site is unadorned to better feature the art, and, is organized to be easily updated and maintained by non-technical people.
One unusual feature of the site’s theme is that the background color can be changed from dark to light by clicking the buttons at top right of the homepage; see which you prefer here.
WEBMASTER UPDATE: The artist informs me that
he retained rights to produce
new copies of PEGASUS from
his original molds. If interested
in purchasing your own Flying Horse
please comment here or on his website,
