A small group of anonymous donors is proposing a set of new public monuments for Charlotte. The monuments would sit beside the South Tryon Street bridge at I-277.

The donors established the Queen’s Table Fund in 1991. Prior gifts include Sculptures on the Square; Hezekiah Alexander House, Charlotte Museum of History; Queen Charlotte at Douglas International Airport; Aspire, bronze sculpture on the CPCC central campus; and Wind Sculpture on West Trade Street.
The group hopes to install two monuments at at the north bridge approach of S. Tryon Street Bridge by late summer or early fall.
Annual maintenance costs for the city are estimated at $ 8,450.
