Conceived by Hubertus von der Goltz as a gateway between the Loop and River North, Crossing symbolizes the delicate balance of the commercial and cultural districts that converge along the LaSalle Street corridor. The figure, which appears to be carefully poised atop the sculpture’s angular structural element, can be seen in silhouette when viewed from north or south. Juxtaposed with the statue of Ceres, atop the Chicago Board of Trade Building at the south end of LaSalle Street, Crossing also provides a visual comparison between contemporary and Art Deco styles of art.
