Sept 25 1984: Ben Carpenter (seated) with artist Robert Glen.

After waiting for the buildings to be completed, the sculpture received the finishing touches in Texas, and the sculpture and plaza were dedicated Sept. 25, 1984. Williams Square was named for Carpenter’s sister and her husband, Carolyn and Dan Williams. Among the recognitions received, the National Sculpture Society presented the Henry Hering Award on May 10, 1988. The award is given as the occasion warrants for outstanding collaboration between architect, owner and sculptor in the distinguished use of sculpture in an architectural project which was represented by the Mustangs of Las Colinas and Williams Square.
