Neil Armstrong Sculpture for Purdue University

Location: Slater was asked to submit a proposal for the Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering being built at Purdue University.
Size: Design for a 1.25 Times Life Size Bronze Portrait
Year Completed: 2009

Slater proposed a portrait bronze sculpture of Neil Armstrong (first man to walk on the Moon) as he looked when he was a student attending Purdue University. She designed a monument with Armstrong standing tall, looking to the stars as he walks up a granite base which echoed the shape of the new Armstrong Hall of Engineering building being built at Purdue University. The three bronze relief panels on the base detail Armstrong’s illustrious career. Original concept sketches and design by Slater, graphic illustrations by Brad Bourgoyne.
