** Livestream art course over two consecutive Tuesdays - July 6 and July 13th (90 minute classes). Click "Attend Event" to register for the course.** Up until August 2020, New York City had only five public art works that represent historic women, but there are many sculptures created by female artists. Join art historian and museum educator Sylvia Laudien-Meo for an exploration of these women sculptors and their work, starting with Emma Stebbins’ Angel of the Waters in Central Park. During the 19th C, upper-class women increasingly began to receive formal artistic training which then allowed them to win public commissions and be recruited for the World’s Fairs. These trailblazing artists succeeded in the world of public art, leading to their prevalence and visibility in modern times and adding important figurative and abstract works to our urban fabric. Some of the artists we’ll address include Anne Huntington, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Marisol, and Louise Nevelson.
