Duke Ellington was a famous African-American composer who was best known for his contribution to jazz. To honor his memory a statue of him was unveiled in 1997. The statue by Robert Graham is 25 feet tall and depicts the Muses holding up a grand piano and Duke himself. It stands in the Duke Ellington Circle, a shallow amphitheater on 110th street, also known as the boundary between Central Park and Harlem. It is also the future site of the Museum for African Art.
