MINIATURE OF CENTRAL PARK ANTHONY AND STANTON STATUE ON DISPLAY
In celebration of the more than 100 years of women voting in New York State, the NYS Museum in Albany, NY is exhibiting a model of the statue of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. The statue will be unveiled in New York City’s Central Park in 2020, the first statue in the city park to honor women.
The fund for the Anthony and Stanton statue model was created in 2013. Meredith Bergmann’s design was chosen in 2018. The working model of the statue will be on display at the state museum through March 31, 2019.
The Anthony and Stanton statue is a source of controversy. Others view it as a major step forward in bringing the first wave of the women’s rights movement out of obscurity.
