Cheese carving goes on National Television.

Also his last work, a monumental cheese carving of Mount Rushmore.
Troy Landwehr doesn't mind if people thinks his art is cheesy.
The sculptor has carved a version of John Trumbull's "Declaration of Independence" in a 900-kilogram block of cheddar.
Trumbull's painting of the historic signing hangs in the U.S. Capitol and graces the back of the American $2 bill.
Landwehr's edition will be shown Thursday on ABC-TV's "Good Morning America" and then be displayed at Independence Mall in Philadelphia.
It will return to Wisconsin for a showing at Landwehr's Kerrigan Brothers Winery in Freedom before being cut and sent to food pantries.
This is Landwehr's second work for Kellogg Company's Cheez-It cracker brand. Last year, he did several renditions of Mount Rushmore.
