Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: Lumpy Mr. Rogers Statue

At 11 feet tall and 7,000 pounds, Fred "Mud Monster" Rogers is supposed to be endearing. Mostly he's just lumpy.

I-279 exit 7A (North Shore). West of Art Rooney Ave., across from Heinz Field stadium and N. Shore Dr. along river path, sheltered underneath a keyhole cut into an abandoned bridge pillar.

Lumpy Mr. Rogers

The lumpy Mr. Rogers statue is currently not on display. Two locals who were jogging nearby told me that it's being refurbished (Maybe it is being smoothed out?) They didn't know when it will return.

After a thorough cleaning of his lumps, Mr. Rogers was safely returned to his pedestal in late February 2018.

This neighborhood is closed because of safety issues. Still a cool location.

This statue was really cool, looking over the Ohio River into the city. It was amazing. I loved it.

Lumpy Mr. Rogers was given a cleaning earlier in 2014, which probably required a lot of hard work.

You can sit in his lap! And get over the "lumpy" appearance, the statue was sculpted by Mr. Rogers' favorite sculpture.

If a mud monster mated with The Thing from the Fantastic Four, this would be the result. The toothy grin is kind of creepy.

It's near the corner of North Shore Drive and Art Rooney Avenue, next to Heinz Field Stadium.
