This lovely Walk features a selection of bronze female figures intended as a celebration of the female form as well as an exploration of the experience of being female. From Gerhard Marcks’ youthful Girl With Braids to Nelly Bar’s shadow-like Standing Nude and Franciso Zuniga’s grandmotherly Seated Woman, this evocative collection affords the opportunity to reflect upon significant women in your life. Benches along the Walk allow for thoughtful contemplation.
