Gender inequality is among the most critical issues facing the world today. Now, artists around the world are banding together to spark the change for equality in a beautiful way, with Statues For Equality.
This global movement is on a mission to balance the gender representation in public art and create tangible change one statue at a time. By creating everlasting bronze statues of some of the most inspirational women of our time, Statues For Equality honors women’s contributions to society and spreads their inspiration to the world. The goal is to reach complete gender equality of public sculptures (50%) across the globe by 2025.
Global public artists and activists, Gillie and Marc created Statues For Equality after a reflection of their own work. They discovered that over the past 15 years they had many sculpture commissions of men but only 1% of woman! They dug a little deeper and found that this was not unique for them but a global issue.
The 10 sculptures have completed their exhibit at 32 Old Slip, NYC and are currently being relocated to their new and permanent homes. Please contact us for more information.
