Brief Description

Baylor University seeks an artist to collaborate with our project team to create a bronze life-sized statue(s) of Rev. Robert Gilbert and Mrs. Barbara Walker in front of the newly renovated and historic Tidwell Bible Building on the Baylor campus. Reverend Robert Gilbert and Barbara Walker became Baylor's first black students to earn undergraduate degrees in 1967.

The minimum contract value with the artist is expected to exceed $250,000, but the funding available will not be disclosed in order to avoid prejudicing the selection process with consideration of cost. From experience commissioning similar works in the past, the University is confident that it has funding available that will be adequate to the project.
