Car Parts Pumping Iron

Iron sculptures of men and women pump iron in front of a gym. Plenty of parking.

[Stephen Francia, 06/10/2020]

The four sculptures, all lifting some sort of barbell, are small but detailed, and the gym sign is just a banner hanging from the front of the building. Translation: the little lifters may not be in this spot forever.
