Rocky Knocked Down the Steps Again
Members of the Philadelphia Art Commission have not approved the planned placing of the famed Rocky Balboa statue at the bottom of the Art Museum steps. However just like Rocky, the statue is going to give it yet another shot.
Stephanie Naidoff, city commerce director, said she believed the full commission would eventually approve the site - if not by early September, then in the fall. “We believe it’s the right site,” Naidoff said. “A couple members [of the commission] who support it were not able to be there… . We think the full commission will approve it.”
Stallone will be in Philadelphia a few times in the fall, she said, so a dedication could be coordinated with his trips to town. The Art Commission, she said, “needs the time to consider it properly, and we respect that.”
