‘Interwoven: A Tribute To Enid Yandell’

It takes a hard head to break a glass ceiling. Sculptor Enid Yandell (1869-1934) did it multiple times: She was the first female sculptor from Louisville to achieve international name recognition and one of the first female members of the National Sculpture Society. If you’ve been to Cherokee Park, you’ve seen her work — “Daniel Boone” and Hogan’s Fountain’s “Pan” (there’s also “Wheelman’s Bench” in Iroquois Park). “Interwoven” features work by ENID, a group of Louisville-area women sculptors named in honor of Yandell. The opening reception is on Sunday, March 31 beginning at 4 p.m., with the dedication of Yandell’s Hometown Heroes banner at the same time (remarks at 4:30 p.m.)  The exhibition and banner begin a yearlong celebration of her art and influence. “Enid Yandell: A Life of Art and Activism” will feature exhibitions, lectures and events.
