Art flowed Wednesday as noted sculptor Gary Lee Price and his staff poured molten bronze for life-sized statues in his Springville studio. The pieces will be part of Price's Great Contributors exhibit of eight life-size bronze statues at this year's Dallas Blooms 2016 at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. The statues (Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Claude Monet, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare and the Wright Brothers) will be seated throughout the 66-acre garden, with a colorful scene of some 500,000 blooms, from Feb. 27 to April 10.
