It isn't painted green. It is made of copper, which turns green over time due to oxidation.

It isn't, that is called patina, the chemical reaction of the elements on metal.

She isn't green, she is covered in thin layer of copper, which turns a blue-green with age due to chemical reactions between metal and water. https://www.google.com/search?q=+stature+of+liberty+green&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=sb

The Statue of Liberty is made of copper on its outer shell. When copper 'rusts' or weathers it turns that shade of green which is called verdigris. Its not paint.
