Bull vs. Bear Death Match

Worth a drive-by, but this is just a solitary statue, with not much else of interest around it.

[Fred, 06/02/2014]

In his sculpture "Forces," artist Harry Weber depicts classic financial market forces of the Bear and the Bull, with no one winning (except, perhaps, whoever collects fees regardless of the outcome).
