Arched, abstract, three-legged sculpture with curved, angled, pointed top. Bronze with green patina on a custom marble base.
On plaque: “Brian Monaghan/Search/Bronze/Purchased in honor of/Mary Radmacher/Chief Librarian 1956 – 1985/by/The Kihara Corporation/Cole Taylor Bank/and her friends”.
This piece was chosen by former Head Librarian, Mary Radmacher, to decorate a meeting room at the Library named in her honor. Sculptor Brian Monaghan said the piece “is constructed of silicone bronze sheets welded into a dynamic and fluid form, evoking a restless and energetic nature... I am working with two themes — serenity and dynamic energy.”

Monaghan owns Central Sculpture Works in Chicago and studied art at the Massachusetts College of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago. His large-scale steel sculptures can be seen throughout the Chicago area. The Library owns another piece of Monaghan’s sculpture, “Untitled Cor-Ten.”
