Robert Allen Zimmerman was born in Duluth, Minnesota.

Bob Dylan was born in New York, New York.

We have started a grassroots campaign to present a gift to the people of New York City commemorating the 50th anniversary of when Robert Zimmerman stepped foot in Greenwich Village, paving the way for Bob Dylan the artist to be conceived. We feel his contributions to the art of music and entertainment are an amalgam of all his predecessors and successors in spirit. Thus, our gift is a tribute not only to Dylan, but to all said people as well, which will come in a form of a permanent designated area in Washington Square Park that will be home to a centerpiece celebrating this event. We are calling the entire plan — the park area and its centerpiece — Eternal Circle.

We intend Eternal Circle to be subsidized by private equity donations that will be used to construct and maintain the centerpiece and the surrounding parkland. We anticipate holding a contest for design concepts open to artists, sculptors, architects, the general public, etc., for Eternal Circle's centerpiece (with one stipulation being the concept must not constitute a statue representing Dylan’s likeness). In addition, we envision Eternal Circle to become a meeting ground for musicians and artists to come together and be free with themselves and their art in the spirit and tradition as they once were, so as to recapture the historical essence and significance of the park which have unfortunately been lost over time.

Eternal Circle goes beyond the notion of recognizing Bob Dylan's specific achievements. It’s simply about the fact that he has achieved – something New Yorkers and peoples of the world all have the potential to do. In essence, Bob Dylan exemplifies the ability of each of us to realize our own dreams and potential. This is our celebration. It is infinite. We are all a part of it and it is a part of us all – Eternal Circle.

By signing the petition you show the world you stand alongside countless others who want to make Eternal Circle a reality.

Keep On Keepin' On,
