Abigail Adams


This is a statue of Abigail Adams, wife of America's second president, John Adams. This statue is in Boston and is part of the Boston Women's Memorial on the mall on Commonwealth Ave. The sculptures are by artist Meredith Bergmann and represent her thinking about representation in public art. Unlike conventional statues that are larger than life and set upon pedestals, these statues are more human-sized and invite viewers to interact with them.

This is a nice sculpture. I wonder if it is bronze?

cool profile picture. I like that the background is blurred. I would have opened up the f-stop more (and compensated for exposure by a faster shutter speed) to get it more blurry. I like getting my backgrounds as blurry as possible with a profile shot.
