The year-long journey from the Corbin Studio to the PSU Campus is documented in this “Making of the Gorilla” video. From Tom’s initial trip to the Kansas City Zoo, to The Crucible Foundry to the final installation, you’ll witness the unique process of creating a monument.

“Given the opportunity to sculpt my first gorilla, I was both excited and anxious about taking on this very significant project. Having recently unveiled the finished bronze, my gorilla experience could not have been more fulfilling and meaningful. I am honored to be a part of a new tradition for “The Gorillas” for years to come”   – Tom Corbin
