New Elvis Statue Planned for Tupelo
New Elvis statue planned for Tupelo: The Tupelo Elvis Fan Club is pleased to partner with the Tupelo Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) to help bring the dream of honoring Elvis with a life-size statue to fruition.
CVB has committed $50000 to the project. The Tupelo Elvis Fan Club has committed to raise the remaining $25000 to bring the statue of this beautiful image of Elvis to the Fairpark District in August 2012.
The statue is modeled after the iconic Roger Marshutz photograph lovingly referred to by fans the world over as “The Hands”.
The statue will be located in relation to other things in the Fairpark District. The statue will be life-size and mounted on a four foot platform so fans may walk up to the statue and outstretch their hands as in the Marshutz photograph.
There will be a bricked area circling the statue. Bricks may be purchased and the donor’s name and message will be engraved into the brick. Together we can all make this a reality. Bricks plaques and benches range are all available to put your name on.
