Brief Description

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP) is interested in commissioning a figurative or abstract work of art, not necessarily a sculptural portrait, of Rosalie Gardiner Jones that captures her dedication to women’s rights. Bidders are encouraged to develop their own understanding of the context of her life and her achievements. The key objectives are to create a lasting tribute to Rosalie Gardiner Jones that is integrated with the Cold Spring Harbor State Park site and uses materials that are durable and require minimal maintenance. The monument to memorialize “General” Jones should engage the public. It should communicate the strength and courage exhibited by Jones as she endeavored to make women’s suffrage a reality through its materiality, its form and its setting.
