Pieces of Liberty Shine in Paris

We the People Statue of Liberty Exhibition

Have you ever wondered what Lady Liberty looked like before her trademark patina settled in? Well, look no further than Vietnamese artist Danh Vo’s current installation, We the People, now on display in Paris at Musée d’Art Moderne.

As Gizmodo reports:

The objective of Vo’s project, however, is not to erect another statue in its totality but to reconstruct its individual elements and allow them to be dispersed to various museums and art venues across the globe. The scattered fragments remain connected to this universal symbol but emphasize the abstract nature of the concept of freedom.
