Feeling Patriotic This Labor Day? Go See The Statue of Liberty on Bolivar Street

Don’t you love the Statue of Liberty? Ever notice that even though she lives in NYC, her likeness is all over the place? Even all over the world? You know about the mini Statues of Liberty in Paris and Tokyo right? Do you know there’s one at customs on the US Canada border at Niagara Falls? How about this – I was in Mongolia a few years ago and there were not one, but two, separate references to the Statue of Liberty that I saw.
In MONGOLIA people!
A restaurant and a health club, as I recall.

She gets around.

But, if you don’t feel like going to NY, Paris, or Mongolia (and I can’t recommend it), why not just drive down Denton's own Bolivar Street and check out this awesome, semi-public art installation?

Just the other day I was wondering where the folks with the Statue of Liberty moved to, and then bang! There she was. Get by and see her soon folks, clearly she’s seasonal or special occasional.

Of course she gets around--she was modeled after a prostitute!!!

I am SHOCKED someone would say such a thing about The Statue of Liberty!
ON the other hand, YFND freely admits lots of people know things I don't. And based on my sketchy knowledge of French artists of the period, this seems a disticnt possibility.

And thank you James, for your encouragement. I really do appreciate it.
