Living For the Dream

"Livign For the Dream is a free-standing work of art located in front of the city jail on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, just two blocks off the Capitol Square. A bio found online says this about the artist:

Frank Brown received his B.F.A. from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and his M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. As a sculptor and ceramist, he has taught in Wisconsin at the Madison Area Technical College and in Minnesota at the University of Saint Thomas and Macalester College. Regarded as one of the Midwest’s leading social realists working in sculpture, Brown has pieces in the permanent collections of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, and the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
