Fighter, 1998
S. Thomas Scarff
Green space at North Clark and West Wisconsin Streets

This 16-foot bronze and stainless steel sculpture is the second piece by S. Thomas (Tom) Scarff in this neighborhood green space. It was originally installed with the intention of being rotated out with other art. Scarff, the curator-in-residence at Purdue University North Central in Westville, Indiana  since the late 1990s, is proud of the work he has been able to accomplish on that campus with Judy Jacobi, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Marketing and Community Relations.  There, he has been able to bring in a number of sculptures by a variety of artists. Scarff relays that the success of the program is now copied by other universities. In the same manner that works are rotated on the campus, Scarff is interested in selling Fighter and replacing it with another work for the residents to enjoy.
