GORT & Klaatu 
Statue Dedication
JULy 6th - 9:30am


Gort and Klaatu, renowned figures from the classic 1951 science fiction film "The Day the Earth Stood Still," have long been embraced by the UFO community for their portrayal of extraterrestrial beings conveying a warning to humanity. In a fascinating development, the city of Geneseo is slated to receive a statue of these iconic characters, funded through a grant dedicated to supporting public art initiatives with ties to the UFO community. This statue will stand as a symbol of unity and understanding, echoing the themes of the film that resonate deeply within the UFO enthusiast community. The installation of this statue not only pays homage to the cultural significance of Gort and Klaatu but also fosters a sense of shared appreciation for the broader exploration of extraterrestrial themes in our society.
