Figurative Sculptor: Juan Muñoz

Wandering Washington D.C. one afternoon, "Last Conversation Piece" held my attention for some time. What is this group of whispering punching bags, I wondered. Along with the security cameras lining the museum wall, this gathering of bronze figures left a foreboding feeling.

I stood alone with them in this empty yard wanting to be a part of their intimate secret. It seemed I was one of the outsider figures moving in to hear, but also unable to come closer. In truth all of us: mute, moving, and going nowhere.

I was sad to later learn that the artist passed suddenly at only forty eight, but thankful to read that before this last moment came to him, he was recognized for his brilliant work. His sculptures can be found around the world, and I hope to stumble on more.
