Michael Warrick, professor of sculpture at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and the creator of several public sculptures in Little Rock, and Louisiana sculptor Aaron Hussey have been commissioned to create a piece commemorating the survey for the 200th anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase.

The artists were chosen by the Committee for Louisiana Purchase Survey Bicentennial Monument. Co-chairs are John Gill and Sharon Priest.
