The Memorial Courtyard

Along with the existing granite tablet to mark the final resting place of the King of the Blues, part of the Memorial Garden is a life-size bronze of King holding his beloved Lucille – the perfect chance for photo opportunities. The bronze was created by noted sculptor Toby Mendez with input from some who knew King best. Other features have been added to make the area a peaceful place where visitors can go to pay their respects and remember the goodness, talent and humility that defined who he was.
