Brief Description

New York State is interested in creating a figurative statue of Mother Cabrini that captures her likeness and shows her strength, compassion, and service. The proposed statue will convey her commitment to serving the less fortunate and include her work in education, orphanages, and with immigrants, and the importance of immigration to New York State’s history. The statue should be a heroic depiction of Mother Cabrini’s likeness and be surrounded by figures of two children Mother Cabrini served. Most importantly, the artwork should engage the public and communicate the significance of Mother Cabrini’s life through its materiality, form, and setting.
