On Jan. 13, the Portrait Society of America awarded sculptor Brian R. Owens "First Merit" in its 2013 Members Only Competition (within the category of Commissioned Portrait Sculpture) for a bronze bust entitled "Subject

No. 2". This is the second bust from the left in the St. Augustine Foot Soldiers
