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.
Opening June 7 at the Filson Historical Society, Breaking the Mold: Sculptor Enid Yandell’s Early Life, 1869-1900 examines how Enid broke the mold that society and the art establishment imposed on women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by pursuing a career as a sculptor. Known for the figure of Pan on Hogan’s Fountain and the Daniel Boone statue, both in Cherokee Park, this celebratory exhibit commemorates the 150th year of her birth and features materials from the Filson’s collections, exploring Enid’s early life, her time at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, and her early career. The Frazier History Museum’s debut interpretation of the sculptor will be at this June 7 event, which is free and open to the public. The exhibit will be at the Filson through Dec. 27, 2019.
