ATLANTA -- Henry County-based sculptor Andy Davis has been selected to create a statue of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for the Georgia Capitol grounds, Gov. Nathan Deal announced Monday.
Davis has worked as a full-time sculptor since 1999, and forms his creations at the Andy Davis Studio inside the Hood Street Art Center in McDonough. His works include the Georgia Police Memorial, a Ray Charles sculpture in the singer's hometown of Albany, Ga., and a life-size rendering of late Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy.
"I am confident that Andy Davis' past works ... have prepared him well for this historic project," Deal said in a statement.
