Facing racial and gender discrimination, Mary Edmonia Lewis overcame several barriers to achieve international recognition and acclaim as a sculptor in the 19th century. While her unique personal background often attracted as much interest as her works of art, Lewis managed to carve out her own identity as an artist. Her success paved the way for other artists of color as she proved that artistic abilities were not exclusive to the white race.
This virtual program is presented in partnership by The Boston Public Library and The National Park Service.
