Who Supports the Fox Sculpture
The Royal Norwegian Consulate General New York"...the project (Fox) by sculptor William B. Osmundsen and project coordinator Victor Samuelsen is of high quality, and highlights a fascinating aspect of the Norwegian emigration to the US. 'The Voyage of the Fox' will honor the incredible achievement of Harbo and Samuelsen, but also celebrate the universal human desire to explore and push boundaries."Complete endorsement.pdfNorwegian Immigration Association
"...placement of said sculptures (the Fox) in New York and in two Norwegian cities will serve to continue the connection between the Norwegian people and those immigrants and their descendents who have immigrated to the U.S."
