(Not the actual statue.)
As if you needed something else to climb on next spring after Kentucky wins the national championship, the UK Alumni Association is bringing in a bronze Wildcat statue to put in the soon-to-be built Wildcat Plaza. The plaza will be located across from Memorial Coliseum on Avenue of Champions. The Wildcat Plaza will include the Wildcat statue, benches, and some pretty rocks and flowers. The $300,000 project is expected to be completed by April. (Hmmm… perfect timing.)
If done right, the new statue could be a big hit on campus. Nearly every major university has a statue or a giant rock or some kind of monument for every student to pose with for their Facebook profile picture. This could be Kentucky’s.
Although, I was hoping for a 15-foot Josh Harrellson or a three goggles sculpture.
Go bronze Cats.
