SEGD Tour of the Virginia Women’s Monument

Join SEGD Richmond for a tour of the Virginia Women’s Monument led by designers John Crank of 1717 Design Group and Jena Bright. John and Jena will lead the group through their design, community engagement, and fabrication process. After the tour, the group will walk over to Penny Lane Pub for networking and a happy-hour drink on us!

The Virginia Women’s Monument, Voices from the Garden, (Inside 9th and Grace Street Entrance to Capitol Square) acknowledges the brave, creative, and wise contributions of Virginian women. The monument is a metaphor for the often unrecognized voices responsible for shaping our culture, country, and Commonwealth for more than 400 years. Prominently placed and respectfully integrated into the historic Capitol landscape, the Monument’s oval‐garden design includes elements of sculpture and landscaping providing visitors an interactive and educational experience. Out of 34 designs submitted worldwide, the Commission unanimously selected the winning design by StudioEIS of Brooklyn, New York, and The 1717 Design Group, Inc. of Richmond, Virginia.
