The Ram, Charles O. Perry’s bright yellow, steel abstraction, was the first sculpture to find a home in the area and remains a colorful center of attention. The sculpture’s title and form suggest that Perry was inspired by animal horns, but he has taken the idea so dramatically into the realm of abstraction that it literally rises above any reference to nature.
Charles O. Perry, first recognized as an architect, is internationally known as a sculptor; he’s equally renowned for his jewelry collection, and for his design of an 18-story steel tower in Saudi Arabia. Perry’s works are featured in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Art Institute of Chicago, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington.
Located between Park Tower and The Westin South Coast Plaza.
