The Stevie Ray Vaughan Memorial

1993         94"h 43"w 158"d

material: bronze
project assistance: Andrew Lisle, Chris Taylor
landscape architect: Tom Randall, City of Austin, TX
fabricator: Argos Art Casting Foundry, Brewster, NY
site: Town Lake, Austin, Texas
commissioned by the Stevie Ray Vaughan Memorial Fund
photographs by Will Howcroft

Stevie Ray Vaughan's music endures through his many recordings. With that in mind this memorial to the late Texas guitarist concentrates on the man behind the musician.

The site was designed by the artist and Tom Randall, a landscape architect for the City, with the aim of creating a contemplative enclave within a large park.

The figure is unapologetically realistic; the bronze shadow--showing him playing guitar--is a metaphor for his musical legacy.
