It looks like the crowdfunded giant, 11-foot-tall bronze RoboCop statue destined for The Michigan Science Center is FINALLY complete! However, the pandemic has caused the science center to cut back on costs, and now RoboCop needs a new home!
A year ago, the plan for the eagerly awaited RoboCop statue seemed clear. Once completed, it would be installed somewhere outside Detroit’s Michigan Science Center in the spring or summer.
Now the final destination for the monument to pop culture is up in the air again, and the reason is tied to the widespread economic hit museums have taken during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Michigan Science Center will no longer be the permanent home for the grassroots-driven work of art, as first reported by the Metro Times.
Well, “I’d buy that for a dollar!” – come live in my backyard, RoboCop! Check out some more pics of the monument after the jump!
