I’m excited to announce that I’m a finalist for the Dr. Maya Angelou sculpture at the San Francisco Public Library. Congratulations to Kenyatta A. C. Hinkle and Jules Arthur, who are also finalists for the project. The sculpture launches San Francisco’s new initiative to include more historic women in public spaces, as specified by an ordinance calling for 30 percent of nonfiction figures depicted in works of art to represent women on city-owned property.
The proposals will be on view at the San Francisco Public Library from July 17-31 and are open to public comments. View the proposals online here.
