March is International Women’s History Month!

One of the first notable American female sculptors, Emma Stebbins (1815-1882) designed her masterpiece, the Bethesda Fountain, during the 1860s while she was living in Rome. Entitled the Angel of the Waters, Stebbins’ sculptural group depicts the biblical “angel of Bethesda” resting on a base surrounded by four cherubs representing “health,” “purity,” “peace,” and “temperance.” The Bethesda Fountain is the earliest public artwork by a woman in New York City and was the only sculpture commissioned as part of the original Greensward plan for Central Park, a New York City scenic landmark.

I may be headed to #sxsw but I’ll be making this as normal of a Sunday as possible. Also, “it’s not right, but it’s ok” seems far too appropriate of a NYC exit song #RIPWhitney & #RIPBB in 7 days.  (at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR))
