A new monument honoring suffragists Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony will be the first monument honoring nonfictional women in New York's Central Park. While designing the work, sculptor Meredith Bergmann consulted with historians Nell Irvin Painter, Margaret Washington and UC Berkeley History of Art Professor Darcy Grimaldo Grigsby, who in turn met with her graduate students Delphine Sims, Vanessa Jackson, Ryan Serpa and Grace Kuipers. Bergmann credits Prof. Grigsby and her students with providing valuable input in regard to the representation of Sojourner Truth.
An unveiling ceremony will happen on August 26 at 8am EST. Go to monumentalwomen.org to watch the livestream of the event and for more information on the Women's Rights Pioneers Monument and the Monumental Women Campaign. A recent NYT article provides details about the campaign and monument.
