Monument To The Lost Cause
Pioneer Park Cemetery, Dallas TX. Confederate memorial wrapped in black plastic. Commissioned by the Daughters of the confederacy in 1896. Oldest public sculpture in Dallas. It was moved to this location when the city widened the I30 highway. Gov. Mike Rawlings organized a city task force to look into its removal. In 2017 they voted 11- 4 to dismantle it. This drawing was made May 13, 2020. In June I heard it was finally removed. I'll have to do a follow up drawing.
