James Earle Fraser's 1928 Sculpture "The Pioneers" is on the north face of the northwest bridge tower of the Michigan Avenue Bridge. "The Pioneers" is oriented to Michigan Avenue (Left Face) and with Fraser's right-facing "Discovers" frame the BoulMich. Even with details of the work erased by weather and pollution the power of this work is clear.
That Indian Head also shows up on West Lake Street (at Wells) on Thielbar and Fugard's 1930 Trustees Service System Building. (Don't miss Gwen Lux' "Diana" and "Apollo if you stop by for a look.)
