Musica Statue Nashville

Unveiled in 2003, Musica is a bronze statue by artist Alan LeQuire added as part of an urban renewal project in the Music Row neighborhood of Nashville. The sculpture is situated at the center of a traffic rotary on a grassy hill. In the beginning, the statue was met with backlash and controversy because it depicts nine people dancing in the nude. LeQuire says the intention of the piece is to promote diversity and multiculturalism, which is why his live models included Caucasians, Black Americans and an Asian American woman. Not only is the piece the largest of LeQuire’s collection, it is also the largest in the United States.
