Philadelphia reaches 85% vaccination milestone. More updates and travel resources


The statue by A. Thomas Schomber was commissioned in collaboration with Sylvester Stallone in 1980 for the movie Rocky III (1982) and also appeared in Rocky V (1990). After the third movie, Stallone donated the statue to the city of Philadelphia. The statue depicts Rocky, the lovable underdog who aspired to a victorious goal over insurmountable odds and ultimately became an international symbol of inspiration and a cultural icon. The statue now sits on a grassy knoll at the bottom of the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps. Miniature replicas are available.
