Artist Carves Mount Rushmore Tribute into Block of Cheddar
Just in time for the Fourth or July, we have another reason to celebrate our country: the fact that a Wisconsin cheese carver is in the process of sculpting the faces of former presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln into a 640 pound block of cheddar. That, my countrymen, is patriotism.
Wisconsin cheese artist Troy Landwehr will pay tribute to the founding fathers this week by carving a replica of Mount Rushmore called My Country ‘Tis of Cheese out of a 640-pound block of mild cheddar. Landwehr will work on the sculpture for the next two days in the lobby of West Palm Beach’s City Hall before moving it to the Lake Pavilion for Wednesday’s 4th of July celebrations.
