Giant Colossal Bob Dylan Statue Finalists
The Committee for Building Giant Colossal Statues of Bob Dylan (formerly the Committee for Building a Giant Colossal Statue of Bob Dylan) is pleased to announce its 12 finalists! Thanks to a generous anonymous donation, ALL of the statues in this post will be built in the next five years. Thank you to our state regulators who approved this project, and congratulations, Duluth!
The Committee liked this statue for its simple iconography and stoicism.
This statue spoke to us for its democratic everyman values.
Among the heads we received, this one was tops.
The eloquence of this work speaks for itself.
Based on the Colossus of Rhodes, the Committee found the classical references irresistible.
The effect of this proposal under spotlights sold us.
Although vaguely fascist, we were taken in by the statue’s Modernist abstraction and sweeping grandiosity. A restaurant and bar in the head will serve food and drink 24 hours a day to sailors for three seasons per year.
A giant Bob Dylan downtown leaning on a streetlight captured all our imaginations.
Children should be able to play in Bob Dylan’s shadow.
The Committee appreciated this entry’s Bolshevik patina.
The maintenance of this installation will keep local multimedia artists employed for 20 years.
Thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to all our winners!
