New Residents in My Neighborhood

It's pretty awesome. A large sculpture of Grant Wood's famous "American Gothic" characters has been installed in Eisenhower Park on Long Island. It's stands in the middle of a huge field.

A few days ago, on our usual morning walk in the park, my BFF and I noticed trucks and cranes in the field and tremendous heads/shoulders that looked quite familiar were just sitting on the grass. The attention to detail is incredible down to the buttons on the back of the woman's apron and even the brush strokes from the original painting. I hope we don't have a hurricane this fall.

I understand that this tribute is called "God Bless America" and is sculpted by J. Seward Johnson.
