Bronze Statues

In 1999, Charles Hubbard, a Derby Community Foundation board member, proposed the idea of adding art in public places with the use of bronze statues. 

Since 1999, the City of Derby, Derby Community Foundation and various donors have installed 20 bronze statues throughout the community. Many statues were erected to celebrate the memories of honorable Derby supporters and pay tribute to Derby's history. See a list of statues below. Visit each statue's page for more details.
