The Heroes Monument, a tribute to healthcare workers, becomes a new iconic emblem of hope for America during the pandemic


World Renowned, Italian Sculptor, Sergio Furnari, has created a symbol of hope with his life-sized sculpture of a doctor/nurse praying.

To revive the art scene in Soho, he will bring the statue across the street of Cipriani Restaurant on Sunday June 28th from 1PM to 7PM, Tuesday June 30th 3PM to 7PM, and Friday July 3rd 3PM to 7PM at 376 W Broadway, New York, NY 10012. Everyone must please wear a mask and will be socially distanced.

The Heroes Sculpture was displayed in front of New York Presbyterian Hospital when the shift change happens for health care workers. Everyone loved the tribute and people joined in to say a prayer.

Here there is a youtube link of the award winning movie/ documentary of the making of the Heroes Monument:

There is a gofundme page to help pay for making this monument in bronze and funding some children art programs led by Sergio himself. The program consists of creating art made by children that will be displayed in public spaces and galleries. So far this creation of this Hero monument is being funded entirely by Sergio Furnari. And any financial help and support would be greatly appreciated:

With the right financial support Sergio could create multiple monuments glorifying doctor/nurses heroism around the country.

This is not the first tribute to America’s Heroes.  Sergio created the “Lunchtime on top of a Skyscraper” sculpture that was inspired by the famous photo of the same name. He sat at the footprints of The World Trade Center for months, so that the workers would see the tribute as they took breaks from work and even let them sit on top to take photos and feel recognized.
