Sure-to-be-Controversial Barbaro Memorial Statue Will Be Unveiled in New York

This information is from a press release. According to the Blood-Horse web site, Barbaro's owners have issued a statement saying they are not connected with this effort to memorialize (and politicize) their horse. To clarify the information below, I spoke with the gallery today and the unveiling of the near-lifesize sculpture will indeed take place at Central Park South and the piece can be viewed there for a period of time before it is moved to the gallery in the Meatpacking District. During Preakness week, the piece will be on display in Washington, DC.

This is the first of what will probably be several posts about the first anniversary of Barbaro's euthanasia.

Edwards's past sculptures include a nude Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug, an interactive autopsy of Paris Hilton with removable organs, and a war dead Prince Harry clutching the cameo locket of his late mother Princess Diana.
