Bust of Frank Zappa to Grace Baltimore Library

Thursday, 17 Dec 2009 03:56 PM

It took more than a year, but Baltimore officials finally decided where to put a bust of rocker Frank Zappa that was given to the city by his fans in Lithuania.

The eccentric musician's statue will be erected outside a public library.

Zappa never visited Lithuania, but his music was popular there among the avant garde. A Lithuanian fan club erected a Zappa statue in the Lithuanian capital and last year donated a replica to Baltimore, the singer's birthplace.

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

Officials don't know yet when it will be installed.
