Breakin' Through

A statue on the north plaza by D. Michael Thomas titled Breakin’ Through features a horse and rider breaking through a wall of Wyoming sandstone, and the rider is a woman and was made possible by a $500,000 donation from April Brimmer Kunz and Marian H. Rochelle.

The McMurry Foundation UW Legacy Hall features a one-of-a-kind elk horn sculpture titled Hanging Loose suspended in space. It is created with over 120 fallen elk antlers from Jackson that are designed to be one continuous shape. It is designed by Shawn Rivett and sculpted by Steve Barrus, both from Casper.

A statue on the south plaza by Chris Navarro titled Wyoming Cowboy is a bronze representation of Steamboat, Wyoming’s iconic bucking horse, and a rider rising almost 20 feet on its base and was made possible by a $500,000 donation from Bruce and Kathy Bummer.
