Luis Jimenez (1940-2006) was born in El Paso, Texas and died in Hondo, New Mexico where, in 2006, he was tragically killed in an accident in his studio when working on the 32 foot sculpture Blue Mustang, a commission for the Denver Airport. He received a Bachelor of Science, Art, and Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin in 1964. He was an accomplished artist and is most widely known for his large and colorful fiberglass sculptures. Much of his work deals with social and political issues and explores the cultures and legends of both Mexico and the United States.  His work has been shown at museums throughout the United States, and his work is part of the permanent collections of the Centro Cultural Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York, Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York National, Collection of Fine Arts, Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C., and the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C., as well as many others. Selected public commissions can be found in Albuquerque, Cleveland, New York, El Paso, Denver, and Pittsburgh, among other cities.
