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.
