Item Description

First Ladies Who Worked For Women's Rights Bas Relief Sculpture

This bas relief sculture, designed by artist Bill Mack, honors the First Ladies who worked for women's rights.  (Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford, Hillary Clinton, Lady Bird Johnson, and Rosalyn Carter). Four copies were create.  Two in a sand tone and two in a bronze tone.  

One  is at the Ford Presidential Library in Michigan (the donor was from Michigan).

One is at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas.  (President Clinton was in office when the art piece was completed.) 

One is on display at the Sewall Belmont House in Washington, DC. 

The last one hung in our office until we moved in 2012.  Our new office doesn't have a wall that gives the art work justice. Its dimensions are 4ft. 6.5 inches wide, 3ft 6 inches tall, and 3 inches deep.  It weights about 60 pounds.
