Shawnee sculptor Charles Goslin is stepping down from a lead role in creating a statue of Wild Bill Hickok for the city.

He plans to support the new sculptor, a former colleague and local artist named Maretta Kennedy, as she picks up where he left off. Goslin had originally planned to finish the sculpture, but at 89 years old, the task became too monumental to complete alone. As a former mentor to Kennedy, Goslin will collaborate once again with her to finish what he started.
