The 20th Phillie Phanatic will be placed in the Piazza on Monday. Each 100-pound, fiberglass status, painted by local artists, will be on display through August 2010. They have been placed throughout the city at locations like Love Park, Franklin Square, and Independence Visitor Center, so we're honored that the Piazza is being chosen as one of the public art venues. You can view the statue map here - maybe have your picture taken at all of them if you're a true phanatic. Since the Piazza is one of the prime Phils-watchin spots, we think he'll enjoy his time here in Northern Liberties.
So what does our green guy look like? Built like a brick comes to mind. Welcome home, Phanatic #20.
