A color photograph of the entrance of a building. The lower portion features a revolving door with golden frames. Above the door is the name of the skyscraper: “The News Building.” The lobby of the building with a large globe is visible through the revolving doors. Above the entryway is a narrow metal overhand with a repeating geometric patter. Above this is a large surface of light-colored stone sculpted with the silhouettes of two dozen people of all ages dressed differently and carrying tools. The sculpture is very flat, as if each of the pieces are cutouts. A golden background shines through.
