Artist Steven Liguori: Bringing "Miss Atomic Bomb" Back to Life
AIR DATE: May 29, 2012
If you’ve driven around Nevada, you’ve seen Steven Liguori’s handiwork everywhere. From the sculpture at Mary Dutton park to the larger-than-life bronze worker “scaling” the side of the Hoover Dam parking lot, Steven’s work bear the stamp of Nevada history. His latest piece – “Miss Atomic Bomb” – recreates the iconic 1957 photo of a showgirl wearing an “atomic blast” bikini. We talk to Steven about his work, how he created an "atomic blast" out of bronze, and why Nevada history is so important to his artistry.
