For the past few weeks the little village of Celoron , NY has been thrust into the spotlight over an old bronze sculpture of Lucille Ball..
Me hanging with Lucy...
So a recent public outcry of how ugly her likeness is AFTER 6 YEARS of display has brought much needed attention to our area. With people flocking to
have a photo taken with Lucy many of us living here can see the benefits of it remaining ..Not the mayor of Celoron though he is in talks with Comedy
Central to purchase the statue and have it shipped away to her old sound stage for the I Love Lucy show which is now @Midnight...via Twitter
I cannot BELIEVE the mayor is so dumb as to not see the value in this! People visiting for a photo will undoubtedly spend $ with local establishments
Secondly the statue was a donation by the Artist Dave Poulin
This gentleman has done alot for our local "art scene" and deserves respect for his talents and his generosity. He ran a local art workshop/school
that ran off donations in the early and mid 90's and has peppered our local area with his wonderful Bronze work.
His DONATION of the statue was with reluctance since he was not happy with her face...I feel for him now.
He offered to fix her but to no avail as
the Mayor has decided to get rid of her and have a new one sculpted by a different artist..
I LOVE our Lucy statue and want it to remain right where it stands!
not to mention we were on SNL this weekend!!!
