Zoo sculpture donors announced

WACO, Texas - The Riverside Sculpture Zoo Project is now a reality thanks to the generosity of two Wacoans.

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Cameron Park Zoo, Clifton and Betsy Robinson have donated $150,000 to place four or five bronze animal sculptures near the Brazos River.

The Robinsons have also committed to match funding from other members of the community to commission additional sculptures for this project.

These riverside sculptures will form part of what will be a sculpture trail along Waco’s riverside hike and bike paths - from Baylor University to McLennan Community College, through the Waco Downtown Cultural District.

Leaders from the City of Waco's panning department and Creative Waco spent hours working through the technical and creative logistics of this project. The final Sculpture Zoo will utilize the work of artists from across the country.

The installation of the sculptures is scheduled to begin this fall.
