Sponsor: Edmond Visual Arts Commission partnered with Pelco Products, Inc. and Phil and Lois Parduhn

The Port Authority overlooks Broncho Lake, which is in the center of the University of Central Oklahoma campus, just north of the University Center.

The Pelican is perched on top of a wooden post, with his beak tucked in close to this chest. The feathers are down, close to the body and the feet hang over the front of the post.

Nearby this pelican sculpture is a man-made waterfall, dedicated benches, Oklahoma Centennial Clock, and several other sculptures.
