Join the Director of the Canton Art Museum, M.J. Albacete, as he presents a program on the Statue of Liberty and the man who engineered her, Gustave Eiffel.
In 1976, the Canton Art Museum housed a four-foot terracotta Statue of Liberty made by sculptor Auguste Bartholdi, designer of the original. So many people came to see the statue, the museum started to assemble a program telling the history of the statue (and since Albacete visited the Statue of Liberty several times, the program became longer and longer).
