"Buzz Around Town", a public art exhibition, is currently on display on the campus of Georgia Tech here in Atlanta. Twenty-five fiberglass forms of Buzz, the GT mascot, have been designed by area artists to be auctioned at a later date to raise funds for charity.
As an '82 graduate of Georgia Tech I was very pleased to learn I had been selected as one of the artists paired with a campus sponsor. My sponsor, GT HEROs (Hearts Everywhere Reaching Out), chose to celebrate the pride of GT Basketball team......and so the "Slam Dunk Buzz" was created.
He currently sits at the entrance to the campus athletic center and has drawn rave reviews. At this writing some thugs stole the trumpet under Buzz's arm. Fortunately photos had already been taken.
