Statue Of Liberty Centennial Restoration

ADDPMP671

A centennial conservation-restoration of the Statue of Liberty that occurred between 1984 and 1986.

The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture located on Liberty Island in New York Harbor in New York City, in the United States. The copper statue, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States, was designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and its metal framework was built by Gustave Eiffel. The statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886.

98 years later, conservation-restoration work was engaged. Much of the restoration effort was based on unprecedented restorative methods, as metallurgical repair work on such a large scale had never been attempted. Many scientists, engineers, government organizations, and professional consultants evaluated and dealt with the various problems and tasks facing the restoration effort. The restored statue was reopened during Liberty Weekend, its 100-year anniversary celebration held July 3–6, 1986.
