Municipal workers cleaned the new park bench installment Thursday in preparation for the official inauguration this evening. The event will begin at 6 p.m. and feature live music.
Lennon was immortalized by Cuban sculpture José
Villa Soberón, one of his many life-size works that are scattered around the Western Hemisphere and purchased by the government as a public art exhibit for the plaza, which is near the La Solidad church. That is at the east end of the Avenida 4 pedestrian mall.
Because of Soberón, Ernest Hemingway still stands in a Havana bar, the Mexican actor Tin Tan sits by a fountain in Mexico City and another rendition of Lennon steps across a creek in Colorado.
