“Each time I visit Mount Rushmore, I’m always amazed on how a person could sculpt it,” explains Lacourciere. “For an artist to accomplish such a great, almost unimaginable feat, should be celebrated. Through my art, I hope to bring awareness to the public of this masterpiece and to honor Gutzon Borglum and the artisans who worked and sacrificed to create Mount Rushmore. Borglum made mountains stand tall and helps us remember to always have courage, strength, and pride in ourselves . . . a true inspiration for our future generations.”
