‘Underlooked’ Jesus Moroles Installation

If one is watching where one is walking, they are easy to miss.  But south of Jones Avenue above the west bank of the San Antonio River, a trio of granite sculptures by Rockport-based sculptor Jesus Moroles pierce the sky.  The reflective spaces Moroles inserted between the slender slabs of granite forming River Steles make the sculptures appear to change constantly, depending on the viewer’s angle or the color of the clouds and sky.

River Steles, on loan to the San Antonio Museum of Art from the family of William W. Atwell, stands  on a piece of land created when a bend in the river was eliminated years ago to control flooding.
