Bronze Roadrunner

When navigating the college campus, search for the Fawell C4 parking lot. The bird is directly south of the lot and beside the flag poles.

Big Bronze Roadrunner

An eight-foot tall bronze chaparral (i.e., roadrunner), sculpted by Matthew Placzek, on the campus of the College of DuPage. It would have been really cool if the roadrunner was being chased by a 15-foot-tall bronze coyote, but you can't have everything.

[John Takao Collier, 05/14/2016]

The roadrunner was erected in 2013. It's the College of DuPage mascot.
