Giant President Busts

Artist David Adickes originally created these seven-foot tall busts of 43 presidents to display in parks in South Dakota and Virginia. When the parks closed, he brought the sculptures back to his hometown of Houston. Although they’re no longer displayed for the public, you can still peek through the artist’s studio fence and see George Washington, Barrack Obama, and everyone in between.
