Fans Demand Removal of Lucille Ball Statue

One thing you will never have with us is a problem with sculptures that don't look correct.  This statue shocked me when it was unveiled as I feel the client was blind sided.  Check out our website at www.bronze-mascot.com or www.bigbronze.com as we can custom make any design, any size as we are the largest designers, manufacturers and suppliers of medium size to monumental size, bronze sculptures in the world.  Our work is hands down the best and you will not be disappointed as we always include the customer in the design phase so there are no surprises when the piece arrives.

JAMESTOWN, NY -There is not much “love” coming from Lucille Ball fans in Celeron, N.Y. over a statute of the late comedienne.

According to a “We Love Lucy! Get Ride of this Statue,” a Facebook advocating for the statue's removal, residents are petitioning to remove the creepy bronze fixture.

“Lucille Ball was born in Jamestown NY. She was raised and grew up in a town about a mile from Jamestown named Celoron. The people of Celoron have erected this horrible statue of Lucy in her hometown. It is a nightmare. We want them to replace it,” the group writes.

The mayor of Jamestown, which is home to the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum & Center for Comedy, told the Jamestown Post-Journal that it would cost the city between $8,000 and $10,000 to re-cast the statue, and the city refuses to use tax dollars to do so.

Lucille Ball died at age 77 in 1989. She made a huge mark in the entertainment industry starring in sitcoms “I Love Lucy,” “The Lucy Show,” and “Life with Lucy”.
