The "Slicker Shy" monument previously resided in the main
lobby of the Sheraton Dallas Hotel (formerly the Adam's Mark Hotel).
After a $90 million renovation, however, the hotel owners decided
to remove the sculpture and find it a new home. Thus, the sculpture
is now available by consignment through Sculptureworks.
The sculpture, by Herb Mignery, depicts a cowboy being thrown from
a rearing horse. It illustrates experiences from Mignery's childhood
on a ranch when horses would spook at the sound of a rider’s
wind-whipped rain slicker. The sculpture is nearly 10 feet across
at the base and weighs over 5,500 pounds.
Shy" was installed on exhibit at the Lewisville, TX, City Hall
in August of 2010.
