5-story statue of nude woman draws controversy

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (KRQE) – A statue is stirring a lot of controversy in one California community and it hasn’t even been put up yet. The art piece features a nude woman reaching for the stars and the San Leandro city manager says it sends a positive message.

The statue will be placed near a new BART station that’s currently being built.

While some welcome the statue, other’s not so much.

The statue costs about a million dollars and should be up in the next few months
