MOUNTAIN GORILLAS - Art of the Rainforest

An exhibition featuring a bronze Mountain Gorilla statue opened today. So reports the Shreveport Times.
"Art of the Rainforest," opening Tuesday at R.W. Norton Art Gallery, features more than 60 works of art depicting flora and fauna from different parts of the globe.
A 64-inch-long black mountain gorilla, rendered in bronze by Bart Walter, will be the centerpiece of the exhibition, according to Bloomer. "This is a subject that we've never had in past special exhibitions," he said. "I think people will find it very interesting."
