LAS VEGAS, Nev. — With his 28-foot-tall creation bearing a steel eagle with a 9-foot wingspan perched behind him, artist Adolfo R. Gonzalez's face lit up when he talked about the memorial to fallen Southern Nevada police officers Wednesday.

"I am a guy that can draw, paint and build, but to do something so grand makes me so proud," he said of the statue he was selected to create.
