Featured Collector - Brigadier General Richard B. Yules - Michael Israel

General Yules attended the FAU Tech Runway Maverick Reception and took home the special edition Lady Liberty that was performed live for the event. This was a one-of-a-kind Lady Liberty done for the event, a truly special piece!

I had the opportunity to personally deliver General Yules’ piece and spend some time at his home, which was great!
I’m sure Lady Liberty will LOVE her new home.
