Is Rockford’s Symbol Statue Red or Orange? [POLL]
We've all driven by this piece of art standing tall on the banks of the Rock river many times. Wondering exactly what it symbolizes and what color it is.
Henry Bruckner, Rockford Rocked via Facebook[/caption]In the late 1970s the city of Rockford commissioned artist Alexander Liberman to design and build what we know affectionately in Rockford as 'Symbol'. According to GoRockford.com:
The sculpture's intent is to pay homage to Rockford's industrial metal-bending factories, the traditional economic mainstay of the city.
Symbol was installed in 1978 at the corner of E. State St. and Wyman St. After 6 years it was taken apart and moved to where it is now, north of downtown Rockford in Sinnissippi Park.
