As You Were Sculpture (W11A0004)
The sculpture As You Were was created by artists Kim and Lora Malakoff. Located in Riverfront Park, it serves as a memorial to Cobain. Cobain reportedly sometimes slept under the nearby bridge that crosses the Wishkah River there. After his body was cremated, some of his ashes were scattered near this site, located a few blocks from his boyhood home.
