Loop [Harris Bank Fountain - by Russell Secrest]

Harris Bank Fountain - by Russell Secrest

Installed: 1975

Location: Harris Bank plaza at Monroe and LaSalle streets, Chicago Loop.

The fountain sculpture was commissioned by the Harris Bank

Seven jets of water splash from and through the seven blue-green, bronze pedestals that make up for this fountain sculpture. The interconnected petallike arms extend 6 1/2 feet in height and the water flows into a massive granite basin that is 22 feet in diameter.
