Project Area: Bunker Hill
Project: Stuart M. Ketchum Downtown YMCA
Project Location: 401 S. Hope Street
Project Type: Developer Initiated
Gracing the YMCA's Hope Street entrance is a 10'h x 6'w bronze sculpture of a trio of female athletes called "Olympiad '84" by Milton Hebald. The sculpture stands on a sleek black granite base located in a small landscaped area. All three athletes appear to be dressed in leotards and wearing ponytails, and have discreet outlines of shorts and tops incised on their figures. Inspired by the Olympic games held in Los Angeles two years before the sculpture was dedicated, Morgan Adams (Hebald's patron) felt that the sculpture's depiction of women officially recognized the YMCA's female members.
