Back in 1982 or thereabouts, Sylvester Stallone donated a statue of himself as Rocky to the Philadelphia Museum. It resided there for a few months before being sent to some sports arena before it was finally put into storage.
It looked like Rocky was down for the count, but wait! Not so fast chief, it seems the Philadelphia art commission has voted to put it back!
My sources tell me that Stallone was so thrilled with the news that he’s decided to start the Stallone Foundation, which will offer financial help to artists creating the type of art that Sly cares deeply about, such as:
Paintings on velvet
Graffiti (so long as it’s not painted on anything owned by Mr. Stallone
Sad clown paintings
Works done with an Etch-a-sketch
Balloon animals (believed to be a personal favorite of Mr. Stallone)
Hey, if he’s into art made from pipe cleaners, dried macaroni and glitter I could have it made!
