Item Details
Connecticut-based sculptor Meredith Bergmann was
commissioned by Boston’s historic Back Bay to do the "Boston Women's Memorial" on Commonwealth Avenue. The piece commemorates Abigail Adams, Phillis Wheatley and Lucy Stone for their writing and their impact on society.

In this piece, the women have literally come down off their pedestals (as in this century women have, symbolically) and have deconstructed their traditional orientation in order to use their pedestals as work surfaces.
