J. Frank Dobie, Roy Bedichek, and Walter Prescott Webb (all great Austin writers) are honored in stone near the entrance to the Barton Spring's Pool. The monument sits about 6-7 foot tall in the picnicking area, and greets incoming visitors to bring friends, enjoy nature, and be creative in the park, just as they did when they held their daily visits to the Springs to talk about literature and writing. The artist that created the statue is Glenna Goodacre. If you follow that sort of thing, you may have heard her name before, as she created the Women in Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C.
