The Briscoe Western Art Museum recently unveiled "Checkmate," a bronze sculpture by nationally recognized sculptor, Herb Mignery. An American cowboy living in Colorado, Mignery draws inspiration from the people he grew up with, using elegant and classical techniques to render small and life-size sculptures. His sculptures articulate the figures inherent to the lifestyle of the great American frontier. The dramatic 12-foot tall installation is located on the corner of Market and Presa streets in San Antonio. The grand opening of the Briscoe Western Art Museum is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26 and 27. For more information, visit http://www.BriscoeMuseum.org.
