Created by a Kiev, Russia-born artist, the 30-ton Symbol was installed on the downtown mall in 1978. The sculpture's intent is to pay homage to Rockford's industrial metal-bending factories, the traditional economic mainstay of the city. In 1984, Symbol was disassembled and moved to its current location along the banks of the Rock River.
