City Council is expected to approve a planned public art tribute to Oak Cliff’s  musical Vaughan brothers, Jimmie and Stevie Ray, May 25.

Artist Casto Solano won the bid for a public sculpture at Kiest Park, a steel screen with the Vaughan’s likenesses, song lyrics and information about their lives. The brothers grew up Glenfield and played at Kiest Park as children.

The city is putting up $74,000 from 2006 bond funds for the sculpture, and another $75,000 or so was raised by former Oak Cliff resident and “Buddy” magazine editor Kirby Warnock.
