This summer Meredith Bergmann’s Monumental Women sculpture will take its place on Literary Walk as the first sculpture in Central Park honoring historical women. Depicting Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Sojourner Truth, and celebrating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, the sculpture arrives at a time when the city is actively trying to increase the number of women honored in its public art, and when the nation is grappling with the meaning of its monuments.
In this virtual discussion, hosted in partnership with our colleagues at FRIENDS of the Upper East Side, Monumental Women sculptor Meredith Bergmann joins Preservationist Lisa Ackerman for a dialogue around her work as an artist, the evolving role of women in public art, and why this sculpture is particularly meaningful at this moment
