Chicago Totem (1964) - by Abbott Pattison
Bronze / 15-foot tall
Location: 400 E Randolph Street
Commissioned by the Jupiter Corporation,
developers of the Outer Drive East Apartments
In making his Chicago Totem, sculptor Abbott Pattison wanted to represent his native city with a totem that like Chicago is "soaring, living, writhing with animal force". His soaring 15-foor bronze was commissioned for its frequently wind-swept site by the Jupiter Corporation, developers of the Outer Drive East Apartments.
