On September 8, 2006, after years of wrangling with museum officials, the Rocky statue, by A. Thomas Schomberg, came to a proper (in my opinion) home next to the famous Rocky steps, also known as the front entrance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art – a world class art museum.
Is the song playing in your head now? Do you hear the repeated chants - Rocky, Rocky, Rocky? I bet many of you do.
Apologies for all the clipped highlights on the statue. It was just me and my point and shoot that day, pre-HDR & RAW.
