TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Before long you'll see a cowboy by the side of Craycroft Road on Tucson's east side.
This cowboy is made of bronze.
He and his horse will be just south of Craycroft and River in a small park going in near new businesses there.
Dan Bates is the sculptor.
"I wanted a large, dynamic sculpture that made an impression. I wanted movement. Anytime you can get movement in a sculpture it's going to attract attention, and I wanted it to be historically correct as far as the region."
Bates also sculpted the horse soldier statue at Fort Lowell Park.
