Celebrate Seattle’s son, music icon and late Grammy® Award-winning singer/songwriter Chris Cornell with the public unveiling of a commemorative statue commissioned by the late musician’s wife, Vicky Cornell. Following the unveiling, footage of a special Soundgarden performance at The Wiltern, captured by the Artist Den, will be screened inside MoPOP’s Sky Church.

The life-size bronze statue sculpted by artist Nick Marras showcases the rock legend in one of his iconic poses with his signature boots, dog tag, layers and long locks. The statue is being donated to MoPOP.
