LexSeeHer Dedication Day

May 18 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Artistic rendition of one side of the LexSeeHer Monument.

Artistic rendition of one side of the LexSeeHer Monument.Lexington women have been instrumental in the pursuit of liberty from the years preceding the Battle of Lexington, throughout the Revolution, and beyond. LexSeeHer will formally dedicate the new “Something Is Being Done” monument designed by artist Meredith Bergmann on May 18th. Visitors can help commemorate important women whose stories have otherwise been lost to time. This is the first monument to recognize women’s economic, political, intellectual, social, and cultural contributions to the Lexington community, Commonwealth, country, and beyond.

The monument will help restore our collective memory of 18th century women, including Phebe Banister Burdoo, Cate Chester, Abigail Harrington, Margaret Tulip, Ruth Buckman, and Anna Harrington. In addition, the monument celebrates their literal and figurative daughters and granddaughters, and other women and girls who continued blazing trails in the pursuit of liberty.

Lexington Children’s Chorus will perform, along with local dance groups.

This event, which is part of LexSeeHer’s “First Look” series is open to all ages, but people are encouraged to request tickets in advance through lexseeher.com.

Limited seating may be available, but as tickets are being scooped up very quickly, people should expect to either stand or find a place on the lawn nearby. People who need accommodations should email [email protected] so the team can help.

The event is free, but donations in support of the monument are encouraged and may be made at lexseeher.com.

There will be a marketplace area for those interested in purchasing souvenirs of the monument and an activity table for children.
