Robert Graham

Robert Graham died. NYT says what I can't here

I am typically not a fan of "monument" sculptures, but his work is unique among them. My particular favorite is the Charlie Parker Memorial at 18th and Vine St. in Kansas City, Missouri. Behind the Jazz Museum.

(Attention! If you follow the "Charlie Parker" link through you will find a website that a) tells you that this sculpture is in Kansas City, KANSAS (untrue, it's Missouri! And I loath this mistake.) b) They later give the state abbreviation for Michigan when they mean Missouri. The point being follow the above link with caution.)
