Close-up of the statue of Ray Bradbury, author who was born and raised in Waukegan, Illinois. Titled “Fantastical Traveler,” the statue was created in stainless steel by artist Zachary Oxman. The design — which features Bradbury, book in hand, on a rocket ship — was inspired by Bradbury’s poem “If Only We Had Taller Been.”
The statue was dedicated on August 22, 2019, what would have been Ray Bradbury's 99th birthday if he were still alive. The book he is holding up is his novel "Fahrenheit 451". I loved this nighttime shot with uplights that highlighted the cogs and gears of the sculpture beautifully.
