Horse Mania Gallops onto Campus

Published: Jul 23, 2010

LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 23, 2010) − Colorfully painted horses have taken over Lexington, and some even found their way to the University of Kentucky campus as LexArts unveiled Horse Mania 2010. Among the artists participating in this popular public art project are Arturo Alonzo Sandoval and Lennon Michalski, of the UK Department of Art, and several alumni. Additionally, three UK entities have sponsored horses that are on display on campus.

 

UK Alumni Endowed Professor of Art Arturo Alonzo Sandoval created the horse "Casablanca" that now stands guard at the Schmidt Vocal Arts Center, home to the horse's sponsor, UK Opera Theatre. "Casablanca" celebrates the art of opera, and incorporates abstract images of the singers, props and sets. Lennon Michalski, an adjunct faculty member in art studio, also has a horse on display downtown. "Lesson in Walking on Water" can be found outside Gratz Park Inn.

 

Besides "Casablanca," visitors to campus also have the opportunity to see two other horses sponsored by university units. "Equestrian," by Jennifer Conrad-Barber, is sponsored by the UK Equine Initiative and is located at Cooper House near the corner of Nicholasville Road and Cooper Drive. In addition, UK HealthCare is sponsoring "Stone Horse," by Darryl Halbrooks, located outside the UK College of Medicine on South Limestone.
