This is a brown plaster model of a sculptural relief that is part of the west (Capitol Avenue) side of Lansing City Hall. It was created by MSU professor of art Leonard D. Jungwirth, who also is responsible for the university's Sparty sculpture, in conjunction with Kenneth Black Architects, the building's designers. It is a representation of the city seal at the time. Although the building opened in 1957, plans for replacing the 1897 City Hall were in the works for nearly a decade, so the date of this sculptural model is not certain. It is approximately 18"h x 24"w x 3"d and very heavy, with some damage from handling. See also collection ID 2014-09-004 for a 1946 color rendering of a prop
