University History: Campus Art: Fighting Stallions


Fighting Stallions, by Anna Hyatt Huntington

There are many stories to tell about the Stallions.  The artist, Anna Hyatt Huntington, wanted to gift the stallions to the college. The correspondence included in the documents section details the gift and the logistics of getting the casting to San Marcos. The base of the stallions was crafted by none other than local artist Buck Winn, who incorporated historic limestone and landscaping into the original base.

When the quad was undergoing some construction in the 1980s, the statue was put in storage, then moved to a new location with a new base.
