TRU-ly Amazing Art: Tom Corbin Presentation

Sunday, February 18, 2024  Join us from 10am to meet and listen to world renowned artist Tom Corbin’s presentation on Sculpting.  Tom Corbin had the honor to sculpt a statue of President Truman for the U.S. Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C.

“After absorbing everything I could find about Harry Truman, I felt that this statue should embody Truman’s personality—his character—as well as his likeness.”                                                                                                                                                                      – Tom Corbin
