Learn Mount Rushmore’s story, which is as bizarre and wonderful as the monument itself. High on a granite cliff in South Dakota’s Black Hills tower the huge carved faces of four American presidents. Together they constitute the world’s largest sculpture. The massive tableau inspires awe and bemusement. How, and when, was it carved? Who possessed the audacity to create such a gargantuan work? AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: MOUNT RUSHMORE airs Tuesday, July 2, 2013 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
