Luis Jimenez, Sodbuster, San Isidro


The UMLAUF is proud to present Sodbuster, San Isidro,  a 24′ fiberglass sculpture by legendary sculptor Luis Jiménez (1940-2006),  the first completed public art commission in his long and distinguished career. The UMLAUF will exhibit the Artist’s Proof: the only casting that has never been displayed out of doors. It is in excellent condition. The UMLAUF will place Sodbuster at the center of the Gallery on the platform built to Jiménez’s original specifications.  For scale comparison, we have borrowed a miniature Jiménez horse sculpture from the Grace Museum, Abilene Texas. Professor Umlauf’s 1962-63 grade book with Luis Jiménez’s name and grade listed is also on view.

Insights // January 28 // 6-8pm

Featuring artist and sculptor Jesús Moroles, who worked extensively with Jiménez and assisted him in the making of Sodbuster. Moroles will detail his experiences and share insights on Jiménez’s process and the time they spent together. This program is free & open to the public. Space is limited. Please RSVP:
