Location Description
Corner of East 9th Street and East Grand Avenue

Iowa is the 38th state to create a monument to its workers. The sculpture represents four interlocking arms and hands, dedicated to the energy and integrity of the Workers of Iowa. Each arm supports the other, in the same way a diverse blend of people, from many back-grounds, come together to work and create the cultural and business base of Iowa. It is constructed of welded bronze strips, supported by a stainless steel interior armature. The open, woven or latticed quality of the sculpture allows constant shifting sunlight to filter through the sculptural space.
