Back to Bricks Unveil New Statue at Bishop International Airport
A fifth statue from the Back to the Brick Statue Committee was unveiled Tuesday morning at Flint’s Bishop International Airport.
The life-size likeness of Charles Nash, who was president of GM from 1910 to 1915 and president of Nash Motor Cars, was created by sculptor Joseph Rundell. It becomes the fifth statue in a series from the Back to the Bricks Statue Committee which is the charitable arm of the Back to the Bricks car show. Other statues are of Louis Chevrolet, David Buick and Billy Durant that are located on the east side of the 400 block of South Saginaw in downtown Flint and a statue of Walter P. Chrysler, also at Bishop, and unveiled in September of last year.
In 2013, some 50,000 cars and nearly 500,000 people attended the 9th Back to the Bricks event in August. The 10th anniversary of the show will be this year from August 12th through 16th.
