Life-size bronze statue of comedian Lucille Ball is seated on the top tier of a circular five-tiered base with a top dome located in the plaza at the entrance to the Academy. Legs crossed, head tilted back, Ball purses her lips and extends her right arm with palm open, as if blowing a kiss across the surrounding plaza to a replica of an Emmy award perched high atop an adjacent fountain. She is dressed in a 1950s style costume consisting of a fancy blouse with full sleeves and a pleated front, a tight vest with a belt, pedal pushers and flats.
