Texas Attractions: Mustangs of Las Colinas
Address: O'Connor Road just north of Highway 114
About the Mustangs of Las Colinas:
The Mustangs of Las Colinas is a spectacular piece of public art, a sculpture that is the largest equestrian sculpture in the world. The piece is located in the Las Colinas Urban District, on O'Connor Road just north of Highway 114 in the Williams Square Plaze.
Adjacent to the sculpture itself is the Mustangs of Las Colinas Museum (5205 N. O'Connor Drive, 972-869-9047) inside the West Tower of Williams Square and open Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
The sculpture, of course, can be viewed any time. It depicts nine wild mustangs, one of which is kneeling at the "water's" edge to drink, while the rest race across a stream, splashing as they go. Incredibly realistic, the Mustangs of Las Colinas sculpture is the work of artist Robert Glen and was installed in 1984.
The horses are cast from bronze. The sculpture is beautiful during the day, but particularly so after nightfall when the horses are illuminated from below and seem almost to glow.
