On July 19, the anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention, the first women's rights convention, the Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Statue Fund announced the winner of its Woman Suffrage Movement Monument Design Competition at an event hosted at New-York Historical's Center for Women's History. A model of sculptor Meredith Bergmann's winning design is temporarily on view in the Museum through the end of August.
The Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Women Suffrage Movement Monument will be installed on the Mall in Central Park in 2020.
Exhibitions at New-York Historical are made possible by Dr. Agnes Hsu-Tang and Oscar Tang, the Saunders Trust for American History, the Seymour Neuman Endowed Fund, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
