    Mary Tyler Moore Statue

    A life-size bronze statue of Mary Tyler Moore is commemorating the Emmy winning star and the character she played in the groundbreaking sitcom “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” The statue honors the impact it had on the image of Minneapolis, as it was set in the show.
     
    Moore’s portrayal of an independent television producer challenged the traditional view of women’s role in society and offered a modern approach to women’s liberation.
     
    The statue was commissioned by TV Land and was originally unveiled on May 8, 2002. It was created by the artist Gwendolyn Gillen, capturing the iconic moment Mary is tossing her hat in the air, as she does during the opening sequence of the show, at the very same spot where the shot was filmed, Nicollet and 7th Street, downtown Minneapolis. The plaque on the statue inscribed with the words of the show’s theme song: “Who can turn the world on with her smile?”
