Red, Blonde, Black, and Olive is one of Bloomington's most iconic sculptures. Created in 1980 from Indiana limestone by artist Jean-Paul Darreau, the piece currently resides in Miller-Showers Park. Chosen through a competition by a committee of artists, businessmen, Bloomington citizens and Mayor Francis X. McCloskey, this sculpture is considered the initial achievement of Bloomington's Community Arts Commission. Aptly representing the diverse population of Bloomington, the two statues have four faces between them. Each face features a different major world ethnicity.
