St. Louis sculptor Don Wiegand speaks to about 250 Missourians gathered Friday for the dedication of his sculpture near the entrance to the National Churchill Museum in Fulton. The bas relief depicts the exact moment in Churchill’s “Sinews of Peace” address in Westminster College in Fulton 65 years ago on March 5, 1946, when Churchill raised his arm and lowered it as he uttered the phrase “an iron curtain has descended across the Continent.”
