Sharing The Load is a public artwork by American artist Dan Leonhardt, located in the Riverwest neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States. Its similarity to the logo of hip hop group, Wu-Tang Clan, has led residents of the neighborhood to refer to the park it rests in as Wu-Tang Park. The sculpture is made of steel and stone and was installed by the artist in 1996.
Sharing The Load consists of two large symmetrical steel sections that are welded together at the base. A thick chain joins the sections together. The chain is also woven around two rocks. The steel sections appear to be holding the rocks up. An inscription that reads "SHARING THE LOAD" is welded on in all capital letters. The steel is the color of rust. The chain is a dark grey. The rocks are tan and beige.
