Chris Navarro

From Casper, Wyoming, and owner of Navarro Gallery and Sculpture Garden in Sedona, Arizona, Chris Navarro has been sculpting professionally since 1986. He is best known for his more than thirty-one monumental bronze sculptures placed throughout the country and his work in nine museum collections. Recent monumental sculptures include a life-size T. rex for the Tate Museum in Casper, Wyoming, a sixteen-foot-tall bronze of the famous bucking horse Steamboat for the University of Wyoming, and The Messenger, commissioned for the Alamo sculpture trail in San Antonio, Texas. He was chosen to be the Honorary Artist for the 2015 Buffalo Bill Art Show in Cody, Wyoming, and received the 2015 Wyoming Governor’s art award.  Navarro, a former bull and bronc rider, still competes in team roping. Chris says “Family, horses, rodeo and art have been the driving passions of his life. I love what I do for a living and hope others can see that through the work I have created.”
