Public Art Team Celebrates Storied Musicians with Sculptures at Chastain Park

The Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs’ Public Art team recently installed bronze busts of legendary musicians at the State Bank Amphitheater (formerly known as Chastain Park Amphitheater) at  Park

These artworks were donated to the City of Atlanta in 2007 by Claude Nobs of the Montreux Jazz Festival to celebrate our partnership with the music festival. These expressionistic bronze busts by Italian sculptor Marco Zeno are a part of the city’s collection and showcase legendary performers Ray Charles, B.B. King, and Willie Nelson, all performing artists from the venue’s renowned history.
