selection  
  E pluribus unum ( Out of many, one) - Great Seal of the United States  
 

 

The selection process for "Every Man A King" is the most important component of the project because it illustrates the philosophy of the piece.

The person depicted in "Every Man A King" will be selected at random from existing data banks from the population of Houston (voting records, tax records, etc.). This person could be anyone, of any age, any sex, or any ethnicity. Regardless, this will be the person who will be depicted in "Every Man A King" and will stand for the entire city of Houston.

The project will be publicized before the selection takes place so as to build excitement and anticipation for who would "win". Once identified and selected, this person will be invited to represent the city of Houston in this monument.
