On the north side of Sloan Ave. just east of its intersection with Klockner Rd, and just to the right of the entrance to the Hamilton train station.
July 2016: Confirmed gone.

King Lear

King Lear by Seward Johnson. The sign says it is made from cupronickel? The statues/art in the area seem to be moved around a bit. There are several in the area, especially on Klockner Road.

[Kathy B., 05/16/2013]

Apparently the latest in Johnson's series of giant statues. We'd guess that this one won't be as popular as his giant Marilyn Monroe.
