After two years of work, a bronze statue of former President Barack Obama was unveiled in South Dakota on Saturday afternoon.
The statue, sculpted by local artist James Van Nuys, is the latest addition to Rapid City’s City of Presidents, in which life-size replicas of each U.S. commander-in-chief dot the city’s historic downtown.
The statue shows Obama when he was first elected, waving and holding the hand of his youngest daughter, Sasha.
