Renowned Texas sculptor Jesus Moroles died Monday in a car accident on I-35 north of Georgetown.

Last Thursday, Moroles and his crew from Rockport, near Port Aransas, delivered four giant granite columns to Dallas. Moroles’ 15-foot tall work, called Spirit Inner Columns, was installed Friday in Hall Arts. That’s the new tower complex going up in the Arts District, across from the Winspear Opera House.

A crane was lifted off the Dallas Museum of Art this afternoon, after it toppled over onto the DMA's south wall this morning. It just missed hitting the museum's iconic sculpture, "Ave" by Mark di Suvero -- the bright red piece made of steel girders that rests on the lawn.
