Ezzard Charles Statue in Laurel Park
Join us as we create the world’s first interactive sculpture in Cincinnati; a statue of Ezzard Charles, a West End native and professional boxer, former World Heavyweight Champion and lifelong humanitarian.
Cincinnati Parks Foundation is proud to partner with:
- Andrew Van Sickle, current CPF Board member and local POP Artist
- Jason Snell of We Have Become Vikings
- John Hebenstreit a local sculptor
- Kailah Ware of Sunny Blu Art
- Steve Ramos of SR Media
Activations unique to the Ezzard Charles statue include a mobile platform and programming embraced by the community. These activations will enhance the health, quality of life and wellness of Cincinnati’s historic West End neighborhood.
This project also supports itself and the greenspace surrounding Cincinnati’s beautiful Laurel Park. Laurel Park was established as a result of the construction of Union Terminal. Located along Ezzard Charles Drive, this crescent-shaped park is perfectly situated between several churches and schools.
