The Morris-Jumel Mansion welcomes storyteller Lou Del Bianco, as he shares the story of his grandfather, Luigi Del Bianco, chief carver of our nation’s greatest memorial, Mount Rushmore. Using primary source documents to bring his grandfather’s story to life, Del Bianco’s presentation discusses the monument’s relation to American, presidential, and immigrant history. Lou Del Bianco’s book, Out of Rushmore’s Shadow, detailing Luigi’s story and posthumous recognition of his talents, has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning and will be for sale in the museum gift shop after the presentation.
