Arts award carved in stone for Indiana sculptor

Posted: Updated:

A southern Indiana limestone sculptor who has worked on projects at the National Cathedral and Iowa State Capitol has been tapped to create the 2013 Indiana Governor's Arts Awards.

The Indiana Arts Commission announced Monday it had selected William Galloway of Bedford to craft the awards, which will feature limestone carved into thin, dancer-like figures.

Galloway has worked with Indiana limestone since the 1980s. His original carvings include benches in Bloomington parks.

This is the 40th year for the Governor's Arts Awards. The 2013 recipients will be honored this fall during an awards program at the Carmel Center for the Performing Arts.

Previous winners include opera singer Sylvia McNair, author Kurt Vonnegut Jr., concert violinist Joshua Bell, singer Crystal Gayle and actor Karl Malden.
