Announcement Coming Soon!
Visitors to the Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum will be greeted by a bronze statue of Amelia Earhart, created by George and Mark Lundeen; Lundeen Studios, Loveland, Colorado. The statue is a twin to the Amelia Earhart statue the Lundeen brothers have created to be placed in Statuary Hall in the United States Capital, Washington D.C. in 2022.
The Amelia statue was created to inspire confidence, courage and grace in the eyes of the public as they view and honor Kansas’ most famous aviatrix. Amelia’s spirit will be evident to all who view the bronze statue. She was fearless; her name synonymous with adventure. We hope her statue at the museum entrance will encourage everyone who enters to share her enthusiasm for adventure and exploration.
The Kansas State Legislature approved a bill to allow replacement of Kansas’ statue of John Ingalls in Statuary Hall with Amelia Earhart. The bill did not allocate funds for the project. In 2013 a national committee was formed to begin the search for a qualified sculptor.
