The plan is for a 20 foot tall sculpture along State Road 57. Corporate sponsors have already donated 75% of the funds needed to build the monument.
Keep Evansville Beautiful President Marsha Dowell says, "When you leave this airport you'll know you've arrived. You'll see this beautiful monument and it will say 'Welcome to Evansville.'"
Four different sculptures are in the running to be the centerpiece of the monument, each designed by different artists.

Voting will narrow the choices down to two sculptures, and the Keep Evansville Beautiful Board and EVV airport leaders will make the final selections.
