ROCKY STATUE

Bill Shiffler, of Philadelphia, left, and Mark Cartwright, of England, imitate the character Rocky Balboa from the 1976 movie "Rocky," on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia, Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2006. Rocky Balboa _ or more specifically, a statue of the Hollywood palooka, boxing gloves raised in triumph _ is being restored to a spot outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the winner by a split decision in a bout between fine art and pop culture. Despite complaints that the statue is piece of kitsch undeserving of display near Renoirs and Monets, the city Art Commission voted 6-2 Wednesday to move the 2,000-pound bronze out of storage and put it on a street-level pedestal near the museum steps.
