Georgia Amphitheater to Get 7 Foot Tupac Statue


When the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia closed its doors in 2015, the family of the late rapper took with them a statue of ‘Pac that was placed in the center’s peace garden.

According to TMZ, the new owner of the amphitheater, Jim Burnett, has hired artist Nijel Binns to create a more realistic statue that will take the place of the old one. The design will be based on a 13-inch clay model but will be made of bronze and stand 7 feet tall. Burnett said it will more than half a million dollars to complete and will be unveiled sometime in September.

In the past, Binns has created statues and busts of Michael Jackson, Frida Kahlo, and Malcolm X.
