Donors Betsy and Clifton Robinson will formally present the City of Waco and the Hall of Fame with the larger-than-life sculpture of a 19th century Texas Ranger on horseback by noted San Antonio artist Don Hunt.  The commission has been permanently installed at the entrance of the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum and marks its 40th anniversary.

Byron Johnson, Director of the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, noted the exceptional generosity of the Robinsons and the appreciation of the Board for this magnificent gift. The dedication of Texas Ranger is also the kickoff for the "Branding the Brazos" project, a privately sponsored $2 million public arts project. 

In addition to Texas Ranger, Mr. and Mrs. Robinson have commissioned internationally known sculptor Robert Summers to create The Waco Chisholm Trail Heritage. The monumental (150% of life-size) three-part bronze sculpture consists of cowboys and a vaquero leading seven to nine longhorns down the Chisholm Trail through Waco.  It will be located near the Suspension Bridge in Indian Springs Park.
