Mustangs thunder to campus

The SMU Mustangs three 11-foot bronze statues of wild horses   were dedicated April 27, 2005, in front of Moody Coliseum.

SMU Mustangs, the only such sculpture on campus to depict the University's wild mustang mascot, were commissioned by real estate developer John W. Carpenter III in honor of his wife, Cele Slaughter Briscoe Carpenter ('78), on their 25th wedding anniversary.

How the statues were created by artist Miley Frost is the subject of an online slide show.

See television coverage of the dedication.

See a video of the dedication ceremony, which was hosted by the Department of Recreational Sports. The video is courtesy of SMU's Norwick Center for Media and Instructional Technology.
