Statue Based On Iconic Picture “The Kiss” On Display At College Of The Ozarks Beginning September 3
The life-size statue, based on the iconic picture of the legendary photo of a sailor kissing a New York nurse in Times Square following the announcement that WWII had ended, will make its way to College of the Ozarks September 3 for display. The Keeter Center at College of the Ozarks will showcase the statue, called “The Kiss,” in its lobby for a limited time.
The public is welcome to visit the statue Monday-Saturday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m.-6 p.m. free of charge and may also visit the “Lest We Forget” exhibit, featuring WWII artifacts and memorabilia and photographs chronicling College of the Ozarks students accompanying WWII veterans to European and Pacific battle sites, in its gallery during the same hours at no cost.
“The Kiss” statue is a project of “Keep the Spirit of ’45 Alive,” a non-profit organization that seeks to preserve the legacy of men and women of The Greatest Generation and help inspire a renewal of national unity in America.
As part of its five-fold mission, College of the Ozarks has the patriotic goal of encouraging in students an understanding of American heritage, civic responsibilities, love of country and willingness to defend it.
