The Cradle of Aviation Museum will be unveiling a commemorative statue/sculpture honoring the late astronaut Sally Ride; the first American woman in space. The seven-foot-tall gold and bronze statue was created by Colorado-based sculptors and brothers George and Mark Lundeen, working with fellow artist, Joey Bainer. The statue will welcome visitors in front of the museum and feature an engraving that honors Dr. Ride. The dedication ceremony will be held on June 17th at 11am and self guided family programs will be available all weekend long celebrating women in aerospace!
