Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Meanwhile, a kickstarter campaign to build a statue of the legend is in the works.

The Dylan by Duluth project goal is to raise enough money to build a bronze sculpture as a tribute to Dylan and his musical talents.

The sculpture would be dedicated to Dylan fans all over the world and would stand twelve feet and six inches tall.

The project has already raised close to $6,000 but will only come to fruition if at least $159,000 is donated.

Tom Page, the sculptor of the piece, says that the tribute is supposed to capture Dylan in the early years of his career, as he left the Iron Range.

The funding period began June 2 and will go for sixty days through August 1.
