Bob Dylan, Life Size As may be expected from a dedicated artist he continues to work on commissions and smaller Gallery works with undiminished enthusiasm. One private commission is a life-size statue of the singer Bob Dylan on which he is seen working above.

An artist from the the city that gave birth to Bob Dylan has started a Kickstarter campaign to immortalize the Minnesota music icon in bronze.
“The image is true to Dylan’s likeness and ‘rolling stone’ spirit,” says sculptor Tom Page of the prospective project in the video pitch on the Kickstarter page. “Some of his most memorable lyrics are cast ‘blowin’ in the wind’ as Bob walks out of the Iron Range and onto the world stage.”

Duluth has no shortage of love for its most famous son. Already there is Bob Dylan Way, the annual Dylan Days celebration (which spreads all the way up to Hibbing, where Dylan’s family moved after he was born), and the series of Duluth Does Dylan compilations. And soon, if the Dylan By Duluth project rolls out as planned, there will be a 12-foot-tall bronze statue forever proclaiming the city’s admiration of the folk icon who once called Duluth home.
Sculptor Tom Page is at the heart of the Dylan By Duluth project, and has already created similar large-scale bronze statues for the Grand Rapids Library and other public spaces. He’s launched a Kickstarter to cover the materials for his newest project, and has already caught the attention of Duluth Mayor Don Ness, who calls the Dylan By Duluth sculpture “a way for our city to recognize our most accomplished son, and to celebrate Duluth’s authentic arts and music ethos.”
