Bill Russell Legacy Project: Artists Selected For Celtics Legend's Sculpture

Antonio Tobias "Toby" Mendez and Matthew Oudens have been selected as the artist team to design and create the Bill Russell Legacy Project sculpture, honoring the Boston Celtics' legend center. The sculpture will be located at City Hall Plaza in Boston.

"This is such a great honor to be chosen to create the Tribute to Bill Russell," Mendez said. "Russell is such a transformative person in so many aspects of his life; in his career on the court as a player and later as a coach, his contributions to human rights and in his dedication to mentorship programs that will guide our children into the future."

"I am very pleased by the selection of a team that will work to represent Bill Russell as one of the greatest champions of all time, on and off the basketball court, and particularly as an advocate for our young people, and for the adult mentoring programs that help so many of our youth," said Boston mayor Tom Menino.
