Roger Ebert Statue in the Works for Chicago [PIC]
And I’ll be honest. I love to go to the movies, but I generally have never liked movie critics! Except one and that’s the late Roger Ebert! Well, I thought this was cool… The Public Art League is organizing efforts to raise money for a commemorative statue honoring Roger.
It will be a Life-size bronze sculpture of Roger, to be placed outside the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, IL, the home of the Roger’s annual film festival, Ebertfest! Organizers hope to raise $125,000 for the effort and hope to unveil and dedicate the statue at the 2014 Ebertfest, scheduled for April. Here's a sample of what it will look like!
