“OUT OF RUSHMORE’S SHADOW” IS FRIDAY, FEB. 14

Through Luigi’s voice and historic documents, photos and video, the audience will learn about Luigi’s special relationship with “The Master” Gutzon Borglum who, with 400 workers, sculpted the colossal faces of four U.S. presidents on Rushmore and depended on Luigi to bring Abraham Lincoln’s eyes to life and save Thomas Jefferson’s face. And, the 25 years it took to get Luigi the recognition he deserved as chief carver in 2016, more than 45 years after his death in 1969.
