We're building the world’s first interactive sculpture at Laurel Park in Cincinnati’s West End.

Join the Society of the Cincinnati Cobra and support the world’s first interactive sculpture from Cincinnati Parks; a statue of Ezzard Charles, a West End native and professional boxer, former World Heavyweight Champion and lifelong humanitarian.

Activations unique to the Ezzard Charles statue include a mobile platform and programming embraced by the community. These activations will enhance the health, quality of life and wellness of Cincinnati’s historic West End neighborhood.

Our project, named the Society of the Cincinnati Cobra, will also support conservationism via maintenance of Laurel Park.

Thanks to Cincinnati Museum of Athletics and West End
