Truckin’ for Jesus – Robert Wells’ weighty welded wonders

Robert Wells

Artist dates unknown
8511 Highway 71 S
Grannis, AR
Welded environment

The word of God is spelled out alongside the road in some pretty amazing sculptures, all using giant links of chain. Big, heavy stuff that carries the Lord’s message “literally and for real,” as Wells says. There’s a giant Bible verse made out of chain, and a “Truckin’ for Jesus” sign that gets lots of horn-honking action. Plus, inside his sprawling compound, Robert’s made a beautiful globe and various other chain link crosses and forms.
