Long Description:

From the Beloit College web site:
"Located between Middle College and South College, this sculpture had been on loan to Beloit College since 1993. In 1996, on the occasion of Beloit's Sesquicentennial, the work was permanently donated to the College by the artist. The title of the piece refers to Russian-born anarchist Emma Goldman (1869-1940) who rejected all institutions of force and all violent means of exploitation. Althought an anarchist himself, Armajani's work is not overtly political in nature. Rather, through the union of fine art and public art, he seeks to create utilitarian sculptures which help call into question conventional political ideologies and accepted notions on art and its function in a democratic society."
