Monument of Georg Ots
2015 marks 95 years from the birth of the great Estonian singer Georg Ots, as well as 40 years from his death. In the spring of 2014, Foundation Mister X was founded in Tallinn, with the aim to celebrate the memory of Georg Ots, including in the form of a life-size monument.
The board of Foundation Mister X includes chairman maestro Eri Klas as well as renowned personages of culture, academics, literature, theatre and opera Leelo Tungal, Arne Mikk, Anu Kaal and Jüri Engelbrecht.
Negotiations over the potential location for the monument are being held with authorities in various cities. When the location has been decided, a sculpture competition will be announced. Binding agreements for financing this high level competition have been made with patrons of Estonian origin.
On June 20, 2014 Mister X Tallinn Gala was organized in Estonia Concert Hall, where the idea was first introducted to the public and first donations were raised.
The opening of Georg Ots monument is likely to take place by the 100th anniversary of Republic of Estonia in 2018. The bank account of Foundation Mister X EE242200221059627556 is currently accepting donations.
