SALISBURY—An artist from Salisbury is getting his work displayed at the new George W. Bush Presidential Center.
Robert Toth said center organizers recently contacted him and requested one of his sculptures of Abraham Lincoln. Toth said he is best known for creating busts of presidents and historical figures.
“That has been my lifetime mission to pay tribute to these iconic people, these masters I call them. I guess you could say they’re heroic,” said Toth.
The George W. Bush Presidential Center is set open next month. Toth said he’s not sure if he’ll see his work on display in person.

The Community Arts Café is an ‘arts community concept,’ intended to fill a void that is lacking within most communities; a full service arts facility and media outlet dedicated exclusively to the coverage and support of the local arts. The Community Arts Café publications and web community was first created and developed in 2006 by Salem Music owner, Jim Tedder of Winston Salem, NC, and was initiated as a community service to connect individual artists, arts organizations and patrons of the arts. The heart of the venture is to cultivate an environment for sharing in the creative expression of the arts within the local community. Together with his wife, Cathy, they planted the seed of a concept that they have been nurturing to produce a healthy all-inclusive arts community platform which may be reproduced in any community.
