Join us for a live historical interpretation of Louisville sculptor, Enid Yandell, and a conversation about about her life, legacy, and impact with ENID, Generations of Women Sculptors. The ENID collective’s mission is to educate and mentor local women artists by providing a spirit of support and cooperation, and by sharing professional and technical knowledge. This program will be held in the Brown-Forman Theatre as part of our Olmsted’s Louisville exhibition.
Nationally renowned sculptor Enid Yandell (b.1869, Louisville, d.1924, Boston) is well known for the statue of Pan on Hogan’s Fountain, and the 9 foot tall statue of Daniel Boone that stands in Cherokee Park. Yandell was a member the White Rabbits, a group of women sculptors who worked on the Colombian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, and the first woman to join the National Sculpture Society (1898). As an activist, she was committed to bettering the lives of others. She supported the Suffrage movement, joined the Red Cross in France during World War I, and served as director of the Bureau of Communications for the American Red Cross in New York after the war.
