Editor’s note: I was excited to see this post on Facebook. We are longtime friends and fans of Doug, have visited his studio and featured his bronze artwork in our magazine. One example is here.
“Since 2010 The Famous Marching Presidents of Nevada City, CA, have worked to honor Nevada City’s connection to that great human rights issue … The 19th Amendment … the right for Women to vote in America,” Dave Parker wrote on his Facebook page.
“Today was a huge step towards fulfilling our goal of a statue unveiled in Nevada City August 2020 which is the 100th birthday of the 19th. Our team ( seen here L to R Sparky, Pearce Boyer, John Boyer, Beth Ann Wilson and Artist Doug Van Howd) met at internationally known artist Doug Van Howd Studio/Foundry and saw the clay model of what will be a life size bronze.
“A very exciting step for sure but many more steps to go. Hopefully in April 2018 we will unveil the bronze of this model. Stay tuned, get on board with this salute and of course Viva Art !”
