Benjamin Harrison



Located along the southern boundary of University Park, this sculpture is a full-length portrait of Benjamin Harrison, 23rd president of the United States and an Indiana native. He is shown with his right hand raised in a gesture of speech. The exedra, a semicircular portico with seats located behind the sculpture, was designed by Bacon. The sculpture is a memorial to Harrison, the “faith he taught” and his “industry, fidelity, courage, sound statesmanship, and justice through the law.”
