Choices Narrowed to 3 for Artists to Sculpt Rockefeller Bust

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A panel has selected three finalists in the hunt for an artist to sculpt a bust of the late Lt. Governer Win Rockefeller that will be displayed in the state Capitol.

The artist selection panel, named after the Senate decided to commission a bust of Rockefeller, announced the three finalists Tuesday from among 13 applicants.  They are: Kevin Kresse of Little Rock, John and Kathy Deering of Little Rock and David Deming of Cleveland, Ohio.

Rockefeller died June 16, 2006, of a blood disorder.  He was 57.  A Republican, he abandoned his gubernatorial campaign after being diagnosed.
