About the Event
Crazy Horse Memorial, the world’s largest mountain sculpture now in progress, is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The nine-story- high face of Crazy Horse, a visionary leader committed to preserving the traditions and values of the Lakota way of life, was completed in 1998 when work shifted to the 22-story-high massive horse’s head. The work was begun in 1948 by sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski at the request of Native Americans, and Ziolkowski determined that the memorial would be more than just a sculpture – it would be a humanitarian project, whereby the stories of Native American peoples would be relayed to present and future generations through the collection and preservation of Indian culture and heritage. Visitors to the memorial can view the progress of the sculpture, as well as tour an Indian museum, cultural center, the sculptor’s studio, and orientation center. Although Ziolkowski died in 1982, his wife, Ruth, and their family continue to work on the project in collaboration with the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation.
