Throughout her career, sculptor Meredith Bergmann has created public art of enduring value, including the Boston Women’s Memorial and the FDR Hope Memorial. On August 26, 2020, her newest work will be unveiled in New York’s Central Park: the Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument. It will be the park’s first — and only — monument honoring real women. “The fact that nobody, for a long time, even noticed that women were missing in Central Park — what does that say about the invisibility of women?”
I’m proud to hear that my friend Meredith Bergmann’s design has been chosen for the Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Woman Suffrage Movement Monument. These will be the first statues of real women in New York City’s Central Park.
Meredith been given two years to complete the work. The unveiling of the monument is scheduled for August 26th, 2020. I plan to be there.
