National Sculptors' Guild Fellow, Jane DeDecker 's monument commemorates the largest nonviolent revolution in our nation’s history — the movement for women’s right to vote. Dedicated to Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Set for 2020 to mark the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, the women's right to vote.
DeDecker elected to depict multiple figures in the monument as a reminder that it took a whole group of women to accomplish this right. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton are shown collaborating on the 19th amendment. Ida B Wells and Alice Paul are shown paying homage to the women before them; standing on the shoulders of giants(Sojourner Truth, Harriet Stanton Blatch, Anthony and Stanton, etc). Signatures of the group of women it took surround the monument. The immensity and scale needed to equal the magnitude of the movement. Bold and Beautiful just like those women who fought for our rights.
"Every word we utter, every act we perform... are wafted into enumerable other circles..." - Elizabeth Cady Stanton reflecting on the life of Lucretia Mott
"When we see them, we're reminded. It's important that we see these women, every day. Seeing them every day will help us to remember their goals and remember their aspirations. Sending a message to every woman that they do have a voice and they can use their voice. I hope the monument inspires young women..., little girls." - Jane DeDecker
We are very proud of Jane and continue to be impressed by her thoughtful sculptures. She’s a winner in our minds! What an incredible design. #WomensRights
JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs.
