A statue of Alton native Miles Davis will grace West Third Street this summer, as organizers are about done raising funds for the project. The Miles Davis Statue Committee is sounding the last call to purchase a commemorative brick that will become part of a plaza around the sculpture.
Pride Incorporated Executive Director Heather Hope tells The Big Z you can purchase bricks or granite blocks to be placed in the plaza through March 1.
The finishing touches are being put on the statue by sculptor Preston Jackson. To purchase a brick or granite stone, or for more information, call 467-2375 or follow the links below.
