Robin Williams Statue on the 'Good Will Hunting' Bench

16,046 Signatures Goal: 5,000

Robin Williams was able to touch the lives of millions with his quick wit, roll-off-the-tongue improv and comedy, and acting roles that have touched and ingrained into the minds of people all around the world.


Whether it was getting us to dance and believe in wishes as a Genie, take soldiers' minds off the war as a fast-paced DJ in Vietnam, a father who will do anything to spend time with his kids, or a therapist that refuses to give up on an intelligent young man, Robin Williams was there to make us laugh, cry, and make us forget about real life for a few hours at a time.

One of his most iconic roles, one that nominated and won him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, was as therapist Dr. Sean Maguire. Although there were many scenes that grabbed the attention of the audience and the Academy, none stick out more now then the famous "Your move, Chief" Park Bench scene.

This petition is to gain support to create a bronze statue of Robin Williams and place it on that bench, so that everyone has the chance to sit with him, stare out into the water, and contemplate life, love, and good memories.

    As a public educator in the inner city, the words that Robin Williams uttered from that bench have kept me as an educator for 22 years. ".. you're just a kid, you haven't the faintest idea what you're talking about." Those words alone will keep a public educator from taking anything personally, and allow he/she to do what they do best, educate!

    In his troubles and while facing his demons, he brought joy to so many others. I hope I grow up to be half the man he was.
