Luis Jiménez's Steelworker

Luis Jiménez (1940-2006)
Painted fiberglass

The son of an immigrant, Jiménez identified with the struggles of working-class people. His larger-than-life Steelworker honors the labors of those who have made this country strong. UMass Boston’s diverse, urban campus is thus a fitting place for this sculpture, originally commissioned for Buffalo, NY.
