Moroles' Granite Windows Assembled on Prexy's Pasture

Jesus Moroles' Granite Windows is sited on Prexy's Pasture. Art faculty David Jones and his class arrive at the sculpture as they did a bike tour of all the works now on view in Scultpure: A Wyoming Invitational. Photo courtesy of the UW Art Museum.

Texas artist Jesus Moroles completed the assembly of his new work, Granite Windows, located on the west end of Prexy's Pasture (opposite Half Acre Gym). Finish work will continue over the next few weeks. Moroles said he was happy with the new work. Using a tank to refer to Wyoming's mining industries, the work furthers his exploration in combining found steel objects and granite.
Granite Windows is an interactive work so that viewers may climb inside, sit atop, and/or move the work on its spindle. The "windows" offer interesting and ever changing views of Prexy's Pasture. There are interesting surprises of texture and structure to be discovered inside the scultpure.
