About this Tour Stop...
The artwork around Foley Square are mostly civic monuments. All of the government buildings are graced with sculptures that are aspirational (Civic Fame atop the Municipal Building) or memorials such as Reunion and Triumph of the Human Spirit which commemorate the African American Burial Ground and the Sugar House Prison Window on Police Plaza. There are a few modern pieces such as Katja Novitskova's Earth Potential at City Hall Park and Tony Rosenthal's Five In One on Police Plaza.
