Hall-of-Fame Sculptor Robert Graham Dies
The Joe Louis Fist in downtown Detroit is one of many sculptures by this hall of famer.
"Born in Mexico City in 1938, Graham was educated at San Jose State College and the San Francisco Art Institute.In addition to his well-known public works in Los Angeles and Washington, Graham created the Joe Louis Memorial in Detroit, honoring the boxer with a 24-foot bronze monument in the shape of a massive fist and forearm, suspended from a pyramid structure. Jazz giants Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker were memorialized with bigger-than-life sculptures in New York City and Kansas City, Mo., respectively."
