And the brick work begins

Restoration work is underway on the brick base of the Superman statue, but there is still time to place an order. Brick sales have been extended into 2022. A 4-inch-by-8-inch brick is $100. The brick may be engraved with up to three lines of text with each line having up to 13 alphabetic or numeric characters and any spacing or punctuation. The restoration of the statue’s base includes repairing the original mortar and replacing the concrete. Brick sales will fund the third phase of the statue’s renovation, restoring the S shield the statue stands on, which will take place next year. The statue received a new paint job in fall 2020. A rededication ceremony of the statue is planned for the 2022 Superman Celebration, which will mark the 50th anniversary of the City of Metropolis becoming the official Home of Superman. Bricks can be purchased online at supermancelebration.net or by calling the Metro Chamber at 524-2714.
