Loved the Fist.

How stupid! How the hell does this represent Detroit? Joe Louis was a great man but this says nothing about who he was. It just looks like Detroit is mad at everybody. If this was supposed to represent Joe Louis it should have a boxing glove on it and not just a fist. "Come to Detroit, we love violence".

Take any visitors you have to to this monument. I haven't had one person not like taking a silly pic with the fist!

A cool & iconic symbol of one of the top 5 boxers to ever live. A symbol of the strength & power that led Joe Louis to victory over Germany's Max Schmeling in the 193? Olympic Games. Should be relocated to a more convenient location, possibly indoors at the Convention Center for better photo opps.

Nice part of Detroit. Look at the statue then take a walk by the water. Not much else there.

I'm honestly not sure how you can review art. Its art and different for everyone. So, art.

A man that should be remembered for so much more than just fighting.

Right in the middle of the downtown of Detroit. Nice view surrounding

If this is truly about Joe Louis, where's the boxing glove? Why not have a lifesized statue of the man? We all know this is a 'Black Power' fist...disgustingly racist.

Ethan

Love this monument to Joe Louis and had fun reading the history behind it. Especially his fight against the German fighter Max Schmeling in 1938 during the height of Nazi Germany. If you're in Detroit stop by and take a picture! Definitely very unique!

Seeing this massive statue of the late Joe Louis' arm and fist is truly inspiring. Symbolizing the American spirit of strength in the light of adversity, we really could use of this unifying spirit in the current political climate. I don't understand how one reviewer can leave such a nasty racist comment about this iconic symbol in the heart of Detroit, but Joe Louis is more than an inspirational figure for African-American. He is an inspirational figure for ALL Americans.

I always revisit this Robert Graham sculpture every time I'm in Detroit. It's a fitting symbol of the city and its historical legacy. It's timely, too,...read this and 8 more
