Long Description:
From the Smithsonian Art Inventory:

"Funded with a National Endowment for the Arts, Art in Public Places grant given in 1974 to the City of Eugene. Additional funding was provided by the City of Eugene, Lane Community College, Lane County, the Portland Art Museum, and the University of Oregon. A grant was also received from the Oregon Arts Commission. The sculpture was made during the Oregon International Sculpture Symposium held in June 1974. The idea for the symposium was to give people an opportunity to observe the creation of a major art work, how it was constructed and what the artist meant to convey with it. Studio space was given at the University of Oregon and at Lane Community College. "Big Red" was constructed at Lane Community College, and a large truck and crane were needed to transport it to its present location."

The Sculpture is located in the Washington/Jefferson Park.
