Head of Bob

Bob is one of the sculptures welcoming visitors to downtown Brighton. The sculpture is located near the northeast corner of Grand River Avenue and Main Street. Bob was created by artist Chido Johnson for the Brighton Biennial Sculpture Exhibit.

Photos taken over the years -- Bob has been here since 2006 -- show that the grinning limestone head has rotated on its pedestal, although how that occurs isn't clear.
