Campaigning for a Permanent Bowie Memorial in London
on 23 February 2017
Crowd-funders are hoping to raise a whopping £990,000 for a permanent David Bowie memorial statue in London. The campaign, known as "This Ain't Rock'n'Roll," is planning for a three-story red and blue lightning bolt statue—honoring Bowie's iconic Aladdin Sane character—to be erected across from the Brixton tube station. It would be the first Bowie sculpture since his death, and fall upon the same road as artist Jimmy C's Aladdin Sane mural. The campaign has until 21 March to raise the money necessary, for what is certainly a worthy cause in tribute to an artist who changed the lives of many.
