The Mustangs of Las Colinas

The Mustangs of Las Colinas The Mustangs of Las Colinas is a breathtakingly realistic bronze sculpture of nine wild mustangs galloping across a granite stream in Williams Square.
(269)

Tourist from around the world come to view the impressive, larger-than-life depiction that serves as the centerpiece of Williams Square, a stark, pink-granite plaza in the Las Colinas Urban Center. This is a must-see for visitors and residents alike. Adjacent to the sculpture, in the East Tower of Williams Square Plaza, is the Mustangs of Las Colinas Museum. In the museum, visitors learn the story of the eight years of work African wildlife artist Robert Glen invested in creating the Mustangs. The museum also presents a short film which brings to life for the visitor the time and effort that went into designing, molding, and mounting this distinctive piece of public art. Other works of art by Robert Glen are also on display in the museum. Admission to the museum is free.

General information

Remember that the Mustang Museum has now moved to the east tower of Williams Square at 5221 North O'Connor. We are on the first floor, just to your right as you come into the lobby from the garage. Note that O'Connor is closed just in front of Williams Square. You must enter the garage from Brune Way which comes off of Las Colinas Blvd. and runs along the back of the Chamber, our William Square garages and Williams Square valet parking. Once you pass the valet parking area for the building and La Cima, where the large flags are on the building, you will quickly see our garage with 5221 on the side. Look for the visitor's entrance to park. Admission to the museum is free.
