Spent the latter half of the afternoon tracking down a mystery for a Friend of Unfair Park, who wondered whatever became of Man and Pegasus
, Carl Milles's 1949 sculpture -- one of six, actually
. For a long while it's been perched at Harwood and Bryan
, in front of Bryan Tower
, built by Trammell Crow in 1973. But now that the iconic skyscraper is in the hands of Spire Realty Group
, the sculpture's been moved -- not for the first time either. Says the Comprehensive Guide to Outdoor Sculpture in Texas
, Man and Pegasus
originally flew in front of the Stemmons Tower International Sculpture Garden on, where else, Stemmons.
It was actually removed a couple of months ago. Says our Friend, a fan of the man and his winged beast: "I figured
they took it away to be refurbished, but it has yet to come back, and
the spot where it used to sit is now completely re-cemented." No, Friend, it will not return: Crow Holdings says today that it will be moved to the front of the Anatole by no later than March 15.
