Unveiling of Hesburgh-MLK sculpture is Wednesday – South Bend Tribune

SOUTH BEND The unveiling of a new sculpture of the Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh and the Rev. Martin Luther King will take place at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Leighton Plaza at 130 S. Main St. in downtown South Bend.

The ceremony is free and open to the general public.

The sculpture, designed by Granger-based artist Tuck Langland, depicts Hesburgh, the late longtime president of the University of Notre Dame, and King, the slain civil rights leader, joining hands, just as they did at a civil rights rally in Chicago in 1964. The sculpture is based on a famous photo captured of a scene at that rally.

The sculpture, slightly larger than life size, was funded by private donations.

Local residents also are invited to gather at 10 a.m. that day at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center, 1522 Linden Ave., for a march to the unveiling ceremony.

Transpo will provide a free shuttle from downtown to the King Center so those participating in the march may park their vehicles downtown, where they will return for the unveiling. The shuttles will depart from Washington Street next to Gridiron Plaza at 9:30, 9:40 and 9:50 a.m. on the day of the event.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg and the Rev. John I. Jenkins, Notre Dame’s president, will attend the unveiling.
