Welcome to the Home Page for the Statue of Responsibility
What you will find in this web site is a proposal for the state of California to improve upon an already existing federal park, Alcatraz Island. The statue of Responsibility is a conceptual proposal and any or all aspects are subject to change.
The design is of a family together yet gazing in all directions. It depicts a young girl looking east in search of a new beginning, a young boy west for adventure, the mother south of warmth and comfort, the father north of guidance and a baby looking skyward to the limitless possibilities that life can offer. It will have the look of a rough cut slate so as not to be culturally distinguishable. We are a Human Family.
Content of the Statue
Inside the statue will be exhibits depicting the evolution of mankind in areas such as art, literature, science, music and human emotion. The plans would include all the layers of history evidenced in the structures already on Alcatraz Island. We intend on integrating the strategic protection of San Francisco Bay during the California gold rush, the effects of the Civil War on the West Coast, and the beginnings of the Native American Civil Rights movement. Bringing in tourists, this statue would provide events, foods and tours, revenues would be proposed to fund the National Parks.
