Press release

• 135 years after "Liberty Enlightening the World" was unveiled on Liberty Island, another Statue of Liberty is set to cross the Atlantic.

• The Embassy of France in the United States, the Conservatoire national des arts et métiers (CNAM)—known in English as the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts—and the CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics, have joined forces to celebrate freedom and French-American friendship by bringing Lady Liberty’s “little sister” to America.

• The 9-foot-tall bronze statue – crafted from the original 1878 plaster model by Auguste Bartholdi and previously on view at Paris’s Musée des Arts et Métiers – will be displayed on Ellis Island on Independence Day before being installed outside the French Ambassador’s Residence in Washington, DC, on Bastille Day (July 14).
