King at Rest
This bronze sculpture of a realistic lion resting on a rock was acquired and installed by the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium organization in 2001, although it was originally cast in 1988. It is located near the northwest entrance to the Indiana Convention Center. Made of bronze, the sculpture seems more realistic because of its two-tone patina scheme. The hair of the lion is patinated black, while the body and the rock are patinated brown. (patina is different from paint; a patina is a surface treatment that becomes integral to the bronze material and is more durable, while paint simply lies on top of the bronze surface and can peel off)
The artist, Lorenzo Ghiglieri, lives in Portland, Oregon and is a former combat artist. He specializes in realistic animal sculptures, and prides himself that all of his work is positive and uplifting. Read more about him at http://www.art-lorenzo.com/about.html

Koch's Electric Graffiti Wall
As one of the few sanctioned graffiti walls left in Indianapolis, IN, Koch’s Electric graffiti wall stands as a testament to the talent of the young, aspiring graffiti community as well as the more well-known graffiti writers in the area. Constantly changing, this living wall has represented the very nature of the art form and the state of graffiti in Indianapolis since 2003.
Korean War Memorial
Designed by Indiana-born architect Patrick Brunner, this unique memorial dedicated to two different wars is made from one large cylinder that is divided proportionally to represent the number of casualties from each war. The Vietnam section of the memorial is slightly larger than the Korean section. The two sections are placed across from one another on the American Legion Mall, representing the distance in time between the two wars. Excerpts of letters written by Hoosier soldiers to family and friends at home are engraved on the convex sides of the cylinder sections, one of the most powerful components of this memorial.
