    This lifesize bronze sculpture was designed by Hollis Williford and has graced the entrance to the Bedford Public Library since 1998.

    Thank you Hollis R. Williford & FRIENDS OF THE BEDFORD PUBLIC LIBRARY.

    Hollis R. Williford was born in the hill country of north central Texas, offspring of people who farmed the sandy land of the Brazos River. After graduating from high school near Dallas, he spent the next three years at the University of Texas at Arlington working his way through with an arts major and English minor. In 1962, he became head of household for his mother, brother and sisters and was forced to drop out of full-time enrollment. After taking employment in the aerospace industry in the Dallas area as a technical illustrator and graphic artist, he continued his education as a night student at North Texas State University. This specialization in technical art ended in 1968 when he was able to return as a full-time student at The Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1970. Hollis remained in the Los Angeles area for a year after graduation and enjoyed a successful career as a free lance illustrator. More about the artist at:

    Until 2005, Bedford had some farmland. The two lone cattle were the last ones to remain on the property. The property was cleared of the trees and scrub and sold to developers because one side borders highway 121. These two cows got to know us because we would bring them vegetable and fruit scraps. When we showed up in the street they would come a running and moo'ing.
