"Boston Bronze and Stone Speak To Us"


The book arrived this afternoon - what an undertaking!!!  I have already read all the introductory pages and the section on the Boston Common. Outstanding!!.  Wissler University, if it existed, awards Joe Gallo its first PhD in Civic Pride. What a beautiful book this is.  I can't wait to continue reading and looking at the marvelous pictures.  The research put into this is mind-boggling.It is a great advertisement for America's first city, The Hub.  - Dick & Donna Wissler
(This book is) a helpful and entertaining companion to the monuments of the most historic city in America. The delightful neighborhood walks will guide you through Boston’s narrow streets seeking out museum-quality public art, while the commentary will take you on an historical adventure through America’s past. - Louis E. Jordan III, Director of Rare Book and Special Collections, University of Notre Dame and author of the definitve study on the 1652 Massachusettss Mint.
Public Art is a great gift to a city and Joe Gallo's book is a great gift to Boston... Joe's comprehensive look at the diverse and important installations in Boston deserves its own place in our modern history and should be a model for such work in other cities. - Jacqueline Ganim-DeFalco, Chair, seARTS (Society for the Encouragement of the Arts)
This book has renewed my interest in the fascinating history of Boston and how its public art, past and present, tells that story. It is colorful, engaging, educational and an invaluable guide for Boston residents and visitors. - Robert Shure, Sculptor

The Boston Women’s Memorial 2003: Phillis Wheatley

Commonwealth Ave Mall Meredith Bergman, Sculptor Bronze / Stone

Born in West Africa and sold as a slave from the ship “Phillis” in Colonial Boston, Phillis Wheatley (1753 - 1784) was a literary prodigy whose 1773 volume “Poem on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral” was the first book published by an African writer in America.

As a free black woman she was a mentor, breaking the old rules in order to build new ones, to inspire every- one, of any race or gender, to be more intellectually free.

She is also credited with originating the genres of African-American poetry and African-American wom- en’s literature. No one in America was willing to print her works, her first writings were published in London, Eng- land. Americans initially doubted that a slave woman could have written these poems, and so Wheatley was subjected to an interrogation by several prominent Bosto- nian men to determine whether she did indeed write them. They concluded that she did.

The statue is part of the Boston Women’s Memo- rial on Commonwealth Avenue, a series of three statues of Bostonian women by Meredith Bergmann: Wheatley, Abigail Adams and Lucy Stone. This poem, which gives a taste of her work, is inscribed on the memorial:

‘Imagination! Who can sing thy force? Or who describe the swiftness of thy course? Soaring through air to find the bright abode, Th’ empyreal palace of the thund’ring God, We on thy pinions can surpass the wind, And leave the rolling universe behind: From star to star the mental optics rove, Measure the skies, and range the realms above. There in one view we grasp the mighty whole, Or with new worlds amaze th’ unbounded soul. ‘ Taken from the Stone

In July 1761, Mrs. Susanna Wheatley, the wife of a prosperous tailor with a large house on King Street, purchased a sickly eight-year-old African girl from Senegal who had been transported to Boston as a slave. By the time of her arrival, there were about 1,000 slaves in the town, whose total population was some 15,000 persons. The young girl took the name of Phillis Wheatley, and within two years she had learned English from the family with which she lived and worked.
