“Nebraska State Capitol” 28″h x 16″w x 16″d
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.
