Man With A Briefcase

The man who wasn't there. 

This 50-foot brushed aluminum plated icon of a businessman holding a briefcase towers over Burnett Park. The sculpture captures the essence of worldwide business culture and is the work of artist Jonathan Borofsky. What it means that the “Man with a Briefcase”, is in fact there only in his absence, is for the viewer to decide.
