WORKERS SCUPLTURE
by Fred Holly
Munster, Indiana
Photographed by Gerald Thurman of Tempe, Arizona

In observance of the 1976 Bicentennial, the Munster Rotary Club commissioned the sculpture of three figures (scroll down for individual photos) representing the history of Munster, Indiana. Fred Holly, a local sculptor, created steel images depicting a native American, a farmer, and a steelworker. Holly used "weathering steel" for the works, a blend of steel alloys. When exposed to weather, it gradually acquires a relatively stable, rust-like patina, eliminating the need for painting and further maintenance.
