While visiting the Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater, make a short walk across Church Street to the east lawn of Lewisville City Hall. There you will find “Slicker Shy,” the largest piece of outdoor sculpture on public display in Southern Denton County. The statue, owned by Dallas Sheraton Hotel and on loan to the City of Lewisville, was installed in July 2010. The bronze sculpture is 18 feet tall and weighs 5,500 pounds.
artist: Herb Mignery
There are three things a cowboy never leaves home without. A hat to fight the blistering sun, a gun for protection and a slicker wrapped up and tied to the saddle for inclement weather. In some cases, when the slicker was removed from the saddle, the cracking noise startled the horse, throwing off the rider. Sculptor Herb Mignery was raised on a working cattle ranch near Barlett, Nebraska. Rather than follow his family’s 110-year tradition of ranching, Mignery turned his childhood interest of drawing into a successful career in the commercial art world before devoting himself full time to fine art. An award-winning member of Cowboys Artists of America, his elegant and classically rendered sculptures chronicle the lives of men and women as they wrestled the land and elements of the early American West.
