"Winged Victory" installed in new museum lobby

Winged Victory statue installed in new museum lobby

The replica statue of Nike of Samothrace, or “Winged Victory,” that formerly graced the plaza outside the previous Yorktown Victory Center gallery building, was installed in the lobby of the new museum building on April 15, 2015. The 20th-century copy of a third century, B.C, Greek original, was the gift of Nick and Mary Mathews, benefactors of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, and has been displayed at the Yorktown museum since 1996.
