A life-size sculpture of the youngest victim of the Boston Marathon bombings is being unveiled at Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts.

The sculpture of 8-year-old Martin Richard is artist Victoria Guerina's representation of a well-known image of Martin holding a poster he made that read, "No More Hurting People ... Peace."

The sculpture is being officially dedicated Saturday at University Park at Bridgewater State. The park is a pedestrian greenway linking the school's east and west campus.

The Martin Richard Institute for Social Justice was named last spring at Bridgewater State, where his parents, Bill and Denise Richard, met. They graduated in 1993.

Martin was one of three people killed in the 2013 bombings.
