David Adickes Presidential Sculptures

Update, April, 2010: The sculptures have been moved from this site.

Sculptor David Adickes is well known for several larger-than-life statues, including the giant statue of Sam Houston on I-45 in Huntsville. He has created busts of all of the presidents and they are on display in two Presidents Parks, one in Williamsburg, VA and the other in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

A third installation is planned in Pearland, Texas, near Highway 288 and the Sam Houston Tollway. Currently, there are six presidential busts on display: George H. W. Bush, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.

To see the presidents, from the intersection of the Beltway (Sam Houston Tollway) and 288, go south on the 288 feeder road. You can’t miss the presidents.
