I’m not sure why those responsible for erecting a statue to a beloved children’s television icon would design a scary, craggy monster looking statue; but then again, this is Pittsburgh (I have no factual basis to make that claim)?
The six-year project was unveiled on a drizzy day yesterday with the 11-foot bronze statue as a center piece to a children’s tribute area. Still. Did NO ONE look at the statue?!? It is as frightening as the actual Fred Rogers was comforting and inviting. It looks like the mythical Jewish rock Golem.
