Breakin' Through

The sculpture celebrates the accomplishments of women in Wyoming -- the first state to give women the right to vote. Amazing statue. Over 20 feet tall, 17 feet wide.

Sculpted by D. Michael Thomas in 2015, it portrays a woman horse-rider smashing through a sandstone wall. The rider was originally going to be a man, and the message of the artwork was to be the power of education. But the statue's principal funders were two women, so the rider was changed.
