Cowboy Boot Sculpture

"These Boots are Made for Talking," a fundraising project of the Cheyenne Depot Museum Foundation, was produced by local artists. Several of these eight-foot tall cowboy boots were placed in and around downtown Cheyenne in the summer of 2004. This one depicting a speeding steam engine was located near the entrance of the former Union Pacific Train Depot on West 15th Street. It was sold at auction and its current location is unknown. In the spring and summer of 2005, seventy-five additional examples of boot-art were placed on display, but this second wave of boots were life-sized -- only 16 inches tall!
