Peter and Willie

March 24th, 2014

This sculpture at Prospect Park's Imagination Playground was inspired by Ezra Jack Keats's book Peter's Chair. From the NY Times:

When the playground opened in 1997, the sculpture of Peter was a deep blue. "The ears soon lost their patina," Mr. Zimmerman said, "because kids would sit on the rock and whisper to Peter."
