  • Norman Borlaug: Journey to Statuary Hall

    From the cornfields of Iowa to an artist’s studio in South Dakota to the foundries of California to the marble halls of Congress, Iowa Public Television documents the artistic journey of a larger than life icon. Set to represent one of Iowa’s two statues in the nation s Capitol, a bronze of legendary agrarian Norman Borlaug has painstakingly been developed for years. Iowa Public Television documents the work of sculptor Benjamin Victor and his drive to honor a man credited with saving more lives than any other human being. This story culminates in the statue’s March 2014 debut in Washington D.C.’s Statuary Hall… fittingly on the 100-year anniversary of Norman Borlaug’s birth. [28 minutes]
