October 30, 2013 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

A famous frog once said, “It’s not easy being green,” and the Statue of Liberty couldn’t agree more. That’s why in honor of her 127th birthday today, EarthCam, the leaders in webcam technology, applied its unique Warholian image effects to its Lady Liberty Cam. Now the Statue can celebrate this special day with a wide range of vibrant colors.

Originally debuted for its cameras in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Museum, EarthCam’s digital process is modeled after Warhol’s silk screen process. The program is based on millions of color and matte combinations to create a one-of-a-kind work of art. Viewers will enjoy a true pop art experience, with unique images of the Statue of Liberty that are only available for 15 minutes of fame and then gone forever.gI_94007_PopArt3

“The addition of our pop art image effects takes the uniqueness of our Statue of Liberty cameras to another level,” said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “This combination of art and technology is just another way we’re connecting people around the world with famous destinations in fun and meaningful ways.”

In partnership with the National Park Service (NPS) and The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation (SOLEIF), EarthCam donated five custom-engineered cameras in celebration of Lady Liberty’s 125th birthday in support of its educational initiatives. EarthCam’s innovative cameras, installed on the torch, provide unrestricted access to unique and exciting views that were instant fan favorites. Receiving recognition worldwide, the popular HarborCam delivers uninterrupted live views and sounds of the always busy New York Harbor and the custom-engineered TorchCam brings viewers up-close and personal, virtually stepping out onto the torch balcony. Viewers can really get to know “The Lady” with an unprecedented look from the CrownCam, gazing upon her regal face, crown, tablet and pedestal. For this year’s anniversary, EarthCam is adding a new megapixel camera in Jersey City, delivering another crisp, high definition look at the Statue from an interesting shoreline perspective.
