From the article of:
"Statue depicts Milton embracing his Gibson ES-335 guitar while seated on a “gar bench”m so-called because of the legs in the shape of gar fish found in the Mississippi River, found in Memphis area parks and created by the Memphis-based National Metal Museum. Funding was provided by Milton’s friends and admirers at the North Atlantic Blues Festival, held annually in Rockland, Maine. The festival is headed by Paul Benjamin who was in attendance. Both he and Mrs. Pat Campbell, Milton’s widow, addressed the crowd, as did Blues Foundation President & CEO Jay Sieleman."
