Luis Jiménez: Sodbuster
Jan. 21 - Apr. 19, 2015
Originally from El Paso, Texas, Luis Jiménez studied sculpture with Charles Umlauf at the University of Texas at Austin in the 1960s. The UMLAUF brought one of Jiménez earliest and most powerful monumental works into the Gallery. Sodbuster, San Isidro (1982; cast 1995) is a rare pristine fiberglass sculpture that celebrates contributions of indigenous and local people to the expansion of the Great Plains. Special thanks to Russell Tether Fine Arts for lending Sodbuster, San Isidro.
