Strength and Optimism
Strength and Optimism is an acrylic painting of The Monument to Joe Louis. The monument is a 24-foot long metal arm and fist of the late world-champion heavyweight boxer Joe Louis. Craig created this painting to instill hope in the future of Detroit, Michigan, the city nearest to Craig’s hometown and where this monument stands. The fist, flanked by Detroit buildings, represents strength, and the statue’s highlights convey optimism for Detroit.
