Weeklong Fete Planned for Zappa Statue in Hometown

The unveling of a statue honoring Frank Zappa in his hometown of Baltimore will feature a week of events including a concert by his son, Dweezil.

The statue was donated by fans in Lithuania, a country Zappa never visited but one where his music was popular among the avant garde. The statue is a replica of one erected by a fan club in the Lithuanian capital.

Baltimore's public arts commission considered multiple locations, including the bohemian Fells Point waterfront, before deciding on the Southeast Anchor Library in working-class Highlandtown, a neighborhood well known for its many Greek restaurants.

Zappa's widow will also host a symposium and the library will have an exhibit in conjunction with the Sept. 19 dedication.
