Quincy (Kwin' zee), Massachusetts, City of Presidents and Birthplace of the American Dream
Thursday, August 16, 2007
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.
