Many years ago I read "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil", and have wanted to see the Bird Girl statue that is shown on the cover of the book. I finally had my chance this summer as we took our road trip through Savannah, Georgia. I was so disappointed to learn that the Bird Girl statue has been moved from her original spot at a local cemetary, and now resides in the TelFair Museum of Art. We easily found the Museum and I bounded up the stairs with my familly, eager to see the statue. When we got inside I was very disappointed to learn that we would each need to pay $20 to enter the museum to see this statue. NO WAY!!! We were nearing the end of a week long road trip down the east coast, and I was not going to spend another $80 to see this. It made me sick to think that this statue lures people to the beautiful city of Savannah, but they no longer have her outside (in one of their MANY "squares") but instead have her stuck inside some old museum so they can charge tourists to view her. Very sad!
