The winning design for a memorial to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King on the Boston Common hopes to celebrate the power of the love between the couple, who met here in Boston.
The memorial, titled "The Embrace," will be a bronze, twenty-two-feet-high sculpture of two pairs of interlocking, reflective arms.
The piece was chosen on Monday out of five finalists by an Art Committee tasked by King Boston, a private nonprofit working with the city to honor the Kings. It was also the most popular proposal with the public, who could comment on the designs.
