Statue of Liberty Neoclassical Architecture, New York

The Statue That Represents America

The Statue of Liberty, located in New York, is well known around the world as an icon of freedom and opportunity in America. The statue takes on a Neoclassical style of architecture as a realistic appeal. The sculptor was Auguste Frederic Bartholdi, Structural Engineer: Gustave Eiffel and the pedestal was designed by Richard Morris Hunt. During the 1980’s the Statue of Liberty was massively renovated. The torch was corroded beyond repair so it was actually replaced. Did you ever think of the Statue of Liberty as a light house? It actually functioned as a lighthouse from 1886 to 1902. The following was written on the base of the statue in efforts to gain money to assemble the statue.

Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-lost to me

by Emma Lazarus, “The New Colossus,” 1883
