Dead Workers Monument

The sculpture is a memorial to all who have died while working in Indiana. Parking in front of monument.

[Stephen Francia, 07/15/2020]

It was sculpted by Daniel Edwards in 1995 and dedicated on "Worker Memorial Day" (April 28). The outfits worn by the three figures suggest that only physical labor or blue collar work is fatal in Indiana.
