In June 2021, a 700-pound bronze statue of George Floyd was installed outside Newark, New Jersey's City Hall. The statue, commissioned by Leon Pickney and sculpted by Stanley Watts, was donated to the city of Newark and will remain outside City Hall for at least one year. Sculpted larger than life, the statue is of Floyd sitting relaxed on a bench. Watts said of the statue that "The world needed a peaceful George."
