If you've seen the five horses caught in mid-gallop on the east wall of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, you may be wondering where they have run off to.
The bad news: The east end of the convention center has been demolished, and Mustangs at Noon, the art piece that created the striking image, is gone. The good news: It's probably coming back. Somewhere, at some point.
“We had them professionally removed very carefully," said Public Art San Antonio Manager Jimmy LeFlor. "They’ve been set aside from all the demolition so they’re protected."
Construction begins today for the realignment of Market Street underneath IH-37, and as the city begins to make way for expansion of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, parts of Market Street need to be repositioned.
The first phase is a permanent closure of the contraflow lane from the northbound feeder road onto Commerce Street. The road will be converted into a pedestrian walkway and bike lanes.
