“The statue is the most famous symbol in the world,” said Stephen Briganti, president of the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation Inc. “Most of the people in the world have seen it, but they have not seen it like this.”
The five cameras were donated by EarthCam to the National park service.
The ceremony caps a week of events centered around the historic date, including the premiere of a major museum exhibition about poet Emma Lazarus, who helped bring the monument fame as the “Mother of Exiles.”
The statue, designed by sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, was given by the French government to the United States as a token of friendship between the two countries and dedicated by President Grover Cleveland.
