Sculptor Meredith Bergmann to discuss Central Park’s First Ever Monument to Real Women!

DATE & TIME: 2:45pm - 3:45pm EDT September 16
Artist Meredith Bergmann will speak with students in Professor Hallie Cohen’s NYC Seminar: Curating the City on Wednesday, September 16 at 2:45 pm via Zoom. Hear about her career as a sculptor, and her latest extraordinary achievement: the 14-foot tall bronze Women’s Rights Pioneers monument close to MMC in nearby Central Park.

Bergmann is a sculptor who, for over 40 years, has been making work that deals with complex themes in an accessible, beautiful and stimulating way. She works both on public monuments and on a private scale. She seeks out public commissions that explore issues of history, race, human rights, disabilities and the power of poetry and music.

Her public commissions include the 2020 Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument for NYC’s Central Park, and the 2003 Boston Women’s Memorial on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston’s Back Bay. She is currently completing the FDR Hope Memorial for Roosevelt Island, NYC.
