Hidden History: Women in Central Park Tour
Honor Women’s History Month by paying homage to the varied and lasting contributions women have made to Central Park. Until recently, Central Park did not feature any public art depicting nonfictional women, but that doesn’t mean women haven’t played an active role in Central Park’s development. Join us to discover the hidden history of women who influenced Central Park sites such as the Pulitzer Fountain, Doris C. Freedman Plaza, Wollman Rink, and Bethesda Terrace. This tour will also highlight contemporary efforts to counteract the lack of representation in the public landscape and advocate for monuments for and by women — including Central Park’s newest addition: the Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument.
