Artist honors MLK with snow statue

NEW HAVEN, CT (NBC) - A Connecticut artist took advantage of New Haven's abundant snowfall and created a full-size bust of Martin Luther King Jr.

The creator of the larger-than-life sculpture of the late civil rights leader is Vic Lundon. It was made Monday to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Lundon said King was a "great man who did a lot for the world," and that the sculpture was his way of helping "make Connecticut beautiful."
