Statue of Noel Neill as Lois Lane to be Unveiled at Celebration

As an artist continues to sculpt the near-life-size bronze statue of Noel Neil in Utah, the Metropolis Chamber of Commerce is conducting a final drive to collect personalized bricks for the statue base in Metropolis, Illinois.

“This statue will be a lovely tribute to a lady who has given so much of herself to Metropolis,” says Lisa Gower, co-chairman of the Superman Celebration.  Noel Neill, also known as “The First Lady of Metropolis,” has been a frequent guest of the Superman Celebration and broke ground for the statue in June of 2009.

The statue idea was presented to Neil as a gift during her 85th birthday party celebration in California a few years ago.  She is well known for her portrayal of Lois Lane in the memorable television series, The Adventures of Superman.

With plans set for an unveiling on June 11 during the Superman Celebration, final engraving orders are needed at the monument company very soon.  A deadline of April 16 has been set for ordering engraved bricks guaranteed to be in place for the unveiling.
