Contemporary Bronze Sculpture in Philadelphia

This is an interesting, contemporary take on traditional bronze sculpture. We often hear people say that they would like to see more "traditional artwork." I would like to see more of it, too, if artists put a contemporary spin on it, thinking about today's audience while addressing the context of the site and/or figure being represented.

See more about this new sculpture by artist James Peniston here.

Memphis should have bronze statues of its old blues musicians and others. It would be accessible public art that would help the city.
Imagine a Jerry Lee Lewis statue of him playing his piano. People from across the world would come and take pictures next to him on that piano bench.
