Local Sculptor’s Willie Nelson Statue Unveiling on 4/20

NoLibs-based sculptor Clete Shields was commissioned to create a bronze likeness of cultural icon Willie Nelson. The eight-foot tall statue is set to be unveiled on Willie Nelson Boulevard in Austin, Texas tomorrow. Nelson will be in Austin to perform at ACL Live at the Moody Theater as a part of a Johnny Cash tribute. Chances are he’ll also be observing the “420″ holiday. [Philadelphia Business Journal]
