A headless bronze statue of a nude Schroeder [4] stands atop a 20,000 pound (9,000 kg) post-and-lintel frame created by Robert Graham in front of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the 1984 Summer Olympics. On the same frame, to the south of Schroeder's statue, is a statue of Jennifer Innis, a long jumper from Guyana. The statues were noted for their anatomical accuracy.
