Join NESA member Meredith Bergmann for a studio tour and discussion about the process of developing a design and bringing a public commission to fruition.

May 13th – 10am to 12pm at Meredith’s studio in Acton, MA

This workshop is open to 20 NESA members.

For over 40 years, Meredith Bergmann has been making sculpture that deals with complex themes in an accessible, beautiful, and provocative way. Working within the tradition of narrative sculpture, she draws on her love of the history of art, literature, and mythology to make the past speak to the present. Blending the sensuality and power of representational sculpture with her own subtle sense of mischief, her work evokes multilayered responses. She works both on public monuments and on a private scale, exploring issues of history, social justice, race, human rights, disabilities, and the power of poetry and music. Her work has been shown in more than two dozen exhibitions and appears in over a dozen institutional collections. Her public commissions include the Boston Women’s Memorial on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston’s Back Bay 2003, the Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument in New York City’s Central Park 2020, and the FDR Hope Memorial in Roosevelt Island, NY’s Southpoint Park, 2021.
