Posted: Updated:

MESA -- A huge statue is going up at the corner of Main and Macdonald in Mesa. It's going to take most of the week to put the 25-foot tall piece together. "God Bless America," which is a tribute to the Grant Wood painting "American Gothic," is on loan to Mesa from The Sculpture Foundation in California.

As Tess Rafols explains, the massive statue, which weighs 8,000 pounds and is made of of three pieces, was mostly recently on display in Chicago.

"God Bless America" will be on display in Mesa through July 15
