Richard Hunt
1975; Cor-Ten Steel; Memorial, Sculpture
North Campus; Courtyard, north side of Bentley Historical Library

Gift of Hobart Taylor, Jr., in memory of his father, Hobart Taylor, Sr. Commissioned for this site, the piece was made to relate directly to its companion piece, Peregrine Section. Taylor, Jr., a U-M alumnus, wished to create a memorial to his father, who was a leader in the Civil Rights movement in Texas and chose to do so with a gift to the Bentley Historical Library. It was the artist Hunt who decided to create two pieces for the courtyard that would complement each other.
