Boston Women’s Memorial, bronze and granite, pavement 30’ diameter, statues 1.2 times life size, 2003
Commissioned for Boston’s historic Back Bay, this commission recognizes Abigail Adams, Phillis Wheatley & Lucy Stone for their writing and their impact on society. The women have come down off their pedestals (as in this century women have, symbolically) and have deconstructed their traditional orientation in order to use them as work surfaces. Each figure represents a different age and creative temperament.
