Looking for the answer to Art Abstracts? It’s Mustang (Mesteño), by Luis Jiménez.
If you’ve ever been to the FJJMA, or walked past the museum on Boyd, you will easily recognize the fiery eyes of Mesteño. The wild stance and palpable energy of this work depict the spirit of the untamed American West. Almost four years ago, the sculpture was moved inside to gaze out the window of the museum after time outdoors left it in need of conservation.
Today, museum staff are in the process of moving Mesteño, to a more central location on the first floor. Stop by tomorrow to check out the work’s new surroundings, and keep an eye on our website and social media to find out why the mustang has roamed from his usual location!
