F. Scott Fitzgerald Statue
Historic Sites, Monuments, Landmarks, and Public Art ()
Artist Michael Price created the F. Scott Fitzgerald statue in 1996 to honor the famous American author on the centennial of his birthday. Constructed of bronze, “warm Brown patina,” and sitting on a red granite base, this bronze statue depicts Fitzgerald in his 30s and is nestled in the middle of St. Paul's Rice Park.

F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota
in 1896, but the Fitzgerald family moved to New York 15 years later. They moved back to Fitzgerald’s hometown 5
years later when F. Scott Fitzgerald attended St. Paul Academy. Fitzgerald attended Princeton University and
lived back home in St. Paul during the summer of 1919, and lived here until 1920.
