The bronze monument was erected at the junction of Garncarska, Bałdyka and Stanisława Moniuszki Streets on May 5, 2004, on the 185th anniversary of birth of this eminent Polish composer. It is a tribute of the local community to the great artist whose works helped Poles survive the difficult time of the Partition of Poland and aroused the national consciousness among Silesians. The plinth under the composer’s bust was designed by Stanisław Szwarc. The bust was sculpted by Bernadeta Leśniowska.
