Women about town

Well I decided to look for art honoring women and it was pretty slim pickings, but I did come up with a few.

This is the only statue honoring an individual woman.  She wrote a well-known song about the mountain “America the Beautiful”.  So her statue gets to actually face the mountain.

This woman representing the pioneering spirit is paired with a man, but all that’s visible from this angle is his rifle.

This dancing dame is on a revolving pedestal, so it is a little difficult to capture her face.  The man seems to be in charge.

This is a more typical bit of art.   Woman as part of a rock.

These young women are part of a larger grouping, bookended by  young men.

I think this rather dated (it was so modern in 1963) grouping used to be downtown before it was moved near the art museum.

I think this lot covers the spectrum of womanhood: virgin, mother and crone.
