    FROM THE PROPERTY OF THE BELO COLLECTION
    Bob "Daddy-O" Wade, Austin native and resident, is a modern Texas art legend. The Chicago Tribune called him a "legendary free spirit" who is "larger than life." Most famous for monumental sculptures and photo-realistic painting, his large sculptures are seen across Texas from San Antonio to Dallas to Abilene, and his paintings can be found in almost every art museum in the state. He has been the recipient of three grants from the National Endowment of the Arts and has had his work exhibited in Biennials in Paris, New Orleans, and The Whitney Museum of Art in New York.
