The Freedom Library is raising $15,000 to bring Liberty to Yuma, Arizona.
Be a part of Yuma history with your contribution.
A brick in your name will be laid at the base of Liberty.
A 9 1/2 foot replica of the Statue of Liberty is being designed by artist/sculptor Jud Turner of Eugene, Oregon. The statue will be made of steel coated by copper and will stand on a six inch pedestal in front of The Freedom Library. From a distance you will be able to discern the replica as the Statue of Liberty. However, upon closer inspection you will be able to see the unique artwork involved in her creation. Liberty will be composed of representations of the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, the tools of industry and the men and women who helped develop liberty in America.
Go to judturner.com to view the quality of the artist's designs which are exhibited in various places around the world.
With just over $2,000 raised so far, please consider a contribution to help bring Liberty to Yuma!!
Dedication of Liberty is slated for Constitution Day, September 17, 2021.
