Inspired by Mount Rushmore, sculptor David Adickes created 42 giant busts of American presidents for a Williamsburg, Virginia, “Presidents Park” that opened in 2004. After the park closed in 2010, the 15-18 foot, 18,000-20,000 pound statues were transported 12 miles to private property, where they have been decaying ever since. We met photographer, author and storyteller John Plashal, who leads walking tours and photography clinics at the location, to learn more. close
