Sometimes you just get inspiration from the craziest places or things.
When a Chevrolet Dealer recenty remembered an advertising image that featured a small boy with a dropped ice cream cone appearing to be spell bound looking at a new Chevrolet, he wanted to create that feeling when a customer walked into his new showroom. He wanted to find a way to capture that spirit for the new entrance.
Renowned artist Gary Lee Price was commissioned to create "Chevy Boy" sculpture which is in the entrance to the new showroom. You can own a replica of "Chevy Boy" and it is available in limited editions of either a 14 inch desk top size and a 50" life size bronze size.
Every sculpture Gary does will have Gary's signature, year it was created and an edition number. You will also receive a Letter of Authenticity.
Whether you are a Chevrolet enthusiast or a collector of bronze statues, Chevy Boy is indeed an unique item that you will cherish.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Gary Lee Price was born with the innate ability to communicate stories by 'simply' breathing life
into his clay and ultimately bronze. His multiple award-winning sculptures commandeer the power and grace of life as we know it. Gary's tenacious 40 year crusade has been fueled by a desire to lift the human spirit through sculpture. And that he has done, and then some.
There are thousands of Gary Lee Price originals that have been sourced and ultimately acquired by public and private collectors from around the globe. His work can be found in galleries, museums, libraries, corporations, cities, educational institutions and of course, in homes.
More of Gary's award winning work can be found at the Springville Museum of Art; Culver Military Academy of Culver, Indiana; Westside Preparatory School of Chicago; Rich De Voss Women's and Children's Hospital of Grand Rapids, Michigan; Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens; Birmingham Botanical Gardens; Scottish Rite Children's Hospital of Dallas, Texas; University of California Berkeley; Cessna Aircraft of Wichita, Kansas; and many more places of private and public gatherings. The 11-foot "Celebration!" featuring joyous children celebrating life and soaring around a globe, was first unveiled in Surrey, England at the American Community Schools. A similar sculpture was dedicated in Decatur, Georgia by former First Lady, Rosalyn Carter. Gary's sculpture "Communion," a 15-foot monument portraying touching hands, graces the United Methodist Church of Brentwood, Tennessee. The interaction-of-hands theme has been an important aspect of his work as reflected in other pieces such as "Synergy," Helping Hand," "Ascent," "Circle of Peace," "Circle of Friends," "Hands of Humanity," and "Hands of Peace." Two of his flight themed sculptures were recently acquired by the Air and Space Museums of San Diego and Seattle, life-sized Orville and Wilbur Wright and Amelia Earhart, respectively.
Gary Lee Price graduated from the University of Utah in 1981 with a BFA in painting and drawing. In 2001 Gary was honored with the "Governor's Mansion Artist Award" from Utah Governor Michael Leavitt for his outstanding support of the arts.
