The National Sculptors' Guild and Gary Alsum have been selected to sculpt a full-figure portrait of Gene Bess; the coach of the men's basketball team at Three Rivers Community College in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Bess has been at Three Rivers since 1971. His career win-loss record was 1268-368, making him the all-time winningest college basketball coach.
The College is completing their fundraising for the sculpture, and Gary will work out the composition and begin sculpting this Spring.
We'll update this post as the project evolves. #WIP
