In June of 2013, Wesley responded to a Call To Artists for a portrait commission of Alvin Saunders Johnson.  Johnson was a Nebraska native who gained National and International recognition as an economist, educator, humanitarian, social activist, writer, and editor.  Wesley was selected as a finalist and then interviewed.  He was chosen as the sculptor and a maquette was started in early August.  The 1 1/3 scale portrait currently resides in the Nebraska Hall of Fame in the State Capitol.
