A dedication celebrating the installation of “Open Season,” a bronze sculpture on the grounds of the Wyoming Governor’s Residence, will be held at 3 p.m., Oct. 2. The dedication is open to the public.
The sculpture of three deer, one buck and two does, by Cheyenne artist Guadalupe Barajas, will be a permanent fixture at the Governor’s Residence.
“This sculpture ‘Open Season,’ portrays the unique and inspiring beauty that Wyoming has to offer,” First Lady Nancy Freudenthal said. “This piece is not only a tremendous example of Wyoming artwork, but is also a grand example of the wonderful wildlife that is seen throughout the state.”
Barajas is a graduate of East High School in Cheyenne, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He was an art instructor in Chicago before devoting himself full-time to producing bronze sculpture. His most recent outdoor sculpture work includes work for the Sierra Trading Post, the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, Lincoln Park, Brimmer Park Softball Complex and Martin Luther King Park all in Cheyenne.
