Program Description

Description

This ARTalk is a slide-illustrated discussion with Pam Elam, Coline Jenkins, and sculptor Meredith Bergmann

It wasn’t easy. Pam Elam, President, and Coline Jenkins, Vice President of Monumental Women, a not-for-profit, which came together seven years ago with the idea of breaking the “bronze ceiling” in Central Park, will be joined by their winning artist, Ridgefield sculptor Meredith Bergmann. Together they will discuss the process used to make Bergmann’s monument to Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton stronger, and meet their goal of unveiling the monument on August 26, 2020, the 100th anniversary of American women’s right to vote via the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.
