Lubbock Mayor Tom Martin called a Special City Council Meeting Wednesday, at Mae Simmons Park. He says he did it, because he believed there would be a quorum of council members showing up for the unveiling of a new statue.
"The Harvest" is a bronze sculpture by Eddie Dixon, in honor of American Indians. He says it depicts an Indian woman holding an ear of corn, and thanking God for a good harvest.
The canyon below, now filled with water and part of the city's Canyon Lakes System, is the site of a battle between Buffalo Soldiers and Comanche Indians in 1877.
The sculpture was designated by Civic Lubbock, Inc., as their Centennial Project, and is a joint project with the City of Lubbock. The project is also made possible in part by a grant from the CH Foundation and the Lubbock Area Foundation - Sybil B. Harrington Endowment for the Arts.
Mae Simmons Park is located at East 19th Street and Canyon Lake Drive. It was the site of a battle in 1877, between Buffalo soldiers and Comanche Indians.
