  • I guess I’m not sure how to present a Chuck Brown monument with class, but from this rendering I can tell this isn’t the right way. I already hate having to look at the monstrosity that is Duke Ellington near the Howard Theater, and I have a feeling that this proposed monument, if adopted, will be equally reviled in the long run. Why does it seem that these days we are trying so hard to make statues “fun”? They just end up looking like jokes… Chuck Brown would hate this thing.

    • do you know of examples of contemporary memorials and public pieces that you’d rather something be like?

      • Call me old fashioned, but I prefer simple profiles. I really feel like the Ellington monument is way too whimsical, but yes, to each their own. I think the MLK memorial was done fairly well in terms of design, despite the deserved controversy.

    • I really like the Duke Ellington memorial. To each their own I guess.
