The statue has already been installed, and will be formally unveiled on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2019 At 10 AM. Rep. Nathan Reitz will be present to read the 2019 Illinois House Of Representative's Resolution honoring Popeye's creator, Elzie Segar, on his 125th Birthday AND commending the Popeye & Friends Character Trail for its favorable impact on our region. Our Sherlock's visage borrows the countenance of Elzie Segar ... a tribute to his compelling interest in The Detective. Segar was one of the earliest Americans to promote the "Sherlockian" subculture and imagery, and he did so in his Iconic , Internationally Syndicated cartoon series, "Thimble Theatre" (1919), which later featured Popeye's premiere in 1929.
The Sponsor Pavers will complete the image of Sherlock & Segar standing in the middle of a magnifying glass lens. See the rough concept art, the sculptor's clay maquette, and a teaser look at the now shrouded monument below.
This statue (as THE Detective) will showcase the 26th Character, attributed to Segar's creative genius, that has been erected in his birthplace, Chester, Illinois. Annually our collection of statues brings thousands of tourists from all across the globe (96 countries to date). For more information regarding the full Trail please visit this tab
