Luigi Del Bianco

Chief Carver on Mount Rushmore



After many decades Sculptor Luigi Del Bianco gets well deserved recognition at Mount Rushmore, in South Dakota as the Chief Carver under Gutzon Borglum.

I created the first bronze plaque of Luigi in 2014 for Port Chester, NY.

The second plaque dedicated in 2017, will now be mounted in the Rushmore Museum for generations.

There are several books out on Del Bianco and his wonderful story, one recent book written by his grandson Lou Del Bianco can be found here.
