Bill Russell Legacy Project

City Hall Plaza


“The Bill Russell Legacy Project celebrates the legacy of the great Boston Celtics champion, human rights activist and mentorship leader Bill Russell. It was commissioned by the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation for the City of Boston at the behest of the late Mayor Thomas Menino and of President Obama’s call for Boston to build a statue “not only to Bill Russell the player, but Bill Russell the man.” Through physical exploration of the space, visitors learn about Bill Russell’s vision as they consider how each child, when given an equal chance to succeed based on his or her own merits, can become a champion too. ┬áThe project incorporates two approaches: a bronze figurative sculpture and an arena of encounter with text, granite and brick elements.
