Robert Richardson, CQ, remembers his friend Luis jimenez, who recently died while moving a piece of artwork he was finishing for Denver International Airport in Hondo, New Mexico, Thursday June 22, 2006. Jimenez was in the process of creating a 32-foot-tall sculpture called Mustang. The sculpture was scheduled to be finished in August for the city of Denver and placed outside the Denver International Airport main terminal. Jimenez had been paid $300,000 of a $450,000 commission in 1992 when he began the project. The Lincoln County sheriff's office said Jimenez "suffered a severe trauma" to one of his legs while trying to move a portion of the sculpture here in front of the workshop and was taken to Ruidoso, N.M., to be hospitalized where he was pronounced dead earlier this month. (((EDITORS NOTE: The quote: "suffered a severe trauma" was taken from an article written By Mary Voelz Chandler, Rocky Mountain News on June 15, 2006)))) (BARRY GUTIERREZ/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
