SAN MARCOS -- Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is Monday and in downtown San Marcos crews will install a steel sculpture honoring him and President Lyndon B. Johnson.

The intersection streets, where the sculpture will be placed, will be named after each man.

Lyndon B. Johnson attended Southwest Texas State Teachers' College, now known as Texas State University.

The sculpture is oval-shaped to represent the meeting between the two in the Oval Office.

The top of the sculpture shows cut outs of the two men hunched in conversation in 1963. This will cast a shadow of the former president and the civil rights activist on the benches below the sculpture.
