Moises Cabrera Orozco

Moises Cabrera Orozco made the statue of Benito Juarez, the first native-born president of Mexico, that sits in the northwest corner of Bryant Park.

He was born in Juchitán, in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, in 1936. He studied art in Mexico City at La Esmeralda and the historic San Carlos Academy, mentored by artists like Francisco Zúñiga, Juan Osorio and Alberto de la Vega.

Among his notable works in Mexico are the Monument to the September Heroes, the Monument to the Mexican Soldier, the Seven Arms Chandelier, and the Catus Sculpture.
