Insights Lecture on Jesús Moroles by Adair Margo
Jesús Moroles moved people through massive displays of granite - chiseled and smoothed to perfection. And equally people were touched by his tremendous generosity, energy, enthusiasm, and boundless energy. His untimely death in June 2015 sent shock waves of sadness through the art world. With the help of the Moroles Studio in Rockport, Texas, the UMLAUF Sculpture Garden & Museum is honored to present his work in the exhibition, Jesus Moroles: A Tribute, running through March 13, featuring sculpture, drawings, and models which Moroles used to create his work.
