Shiloh Museum photo archivist Marie Demeroukas will explore historic statues in Northwest Arkansas in a virtual program entitled, "Monumental, Majestic, Mythological, Memorial, and Merry," which will debut on the Shiloh Museum's YouTube channel on Wednesday, November 18, at noon. "There are a surprising number of statues in Northwest Arkansas, from tourist attractions like Christ of the Ozarks in Eureka Springs, to whimsical statues such as Jubilation T. Cornpone at Dogpatch, to hidden gems such as Nydia, the Blind Flower Girl of Pompeii, in Fayetteville," said Demeroukas. The program will focus on statues which have been in Northwest Arkansas for at least twenty-five years.
