Come learn about how Kent State University partnered with Opera di Santa Croce to create a 3D-printed replica of Pio Fedi’s "Liberty of Poetry," believed to be the inspiration of the Statue of Liberty. Pio Fedi’s “Libertá” was 3D scanned on-site over the course of three days in Florence, Italy. The scans were used to create a nearly full-scale 3D-printed reproduction which was then scenic-painted. By breaking silos of science, art, and industry, nearly 40 individuals worked on the exhibit. The 9-foot-tall replica is currently a special exhibit at the Ellis Island National Immigration Museum through September 2020.
