DID YOU KNOW
“Big Red,” the sculpture located in the College of Business’ Jane Goldstein Plaza, weighs about 6,000 pounds and measures 24 feet tall. Although the artist, Tom Lear, conceived the piece as an abstract structure, many people claim to see in it the Cardinal Bird or the bear and the bull of the Stock Market.
