Texas Tech has added two bronze sculptures to the University Public Art Collection.
The sculptures, titled Bulls, by American sculptor Peter Woytuk depict simplified, larger-than-life bulls at rest. The works were created for the newly constructed Animal and Food Science building.
The larger of the two statues is 8 feet high and 14 feet long. Each of the statues weighs approximately 1,500 pounds.
Woytuk majored in art at Kenyon College in Ohio and graduated in 1980. He accepted an apprenticeship with Connecticut sculptor Philip Grausman. Texas Tech’s Public Art Program is funded using a percent-for-art program that devotes 1 percent of the estimated total cost of each new capital project that exceeds $500,000.
