Graham PhotoBy HarlemGal

On Saturday,  a funeral was held in Los Angeles for the late Robert Graham. Graham created the Duke Ellington Memorial in Harlem, which stands 30 feet tall high with three columns topped with muses holding up a giant size figure of the musician next to a piano. You have to see it for yourself! It’s amazing to see. The sculpture is located at the cross section of 110th Street and 5th Avenue.  

For us at HarlemCondoLife, we want to thank Graham for his contribution to our community. We are forever grateful!

duke_ellington1The Associated Press reported on Sunday that Robert Graham, the Mexican/American sculptor who created the Duke Ellington Sculpture at 110th Street and 5th Avenue in East Harlem, died on Saturday at the age of 70.  Graham designed a number of  works all over the U.S., but for Harlem he designed the famous piece that now stands tall at the Duke Ellington Memorial Circle. To read more about this amazing piece of art work created by Graham, go to Central Park Conservancy.
