Edmonia Lewis | #WHM18 #WomensHistoryMonth #WomenInSTEM

Last month I incorrectly labeled a picture on my blog for Sarah E. Goode – it was in fact a picture of Edmonia Lewis (and I thank Larissa for pointing out my mistake). I was as unfamiliar with the story of Edmonia Lewis as I was with Sarah Goode, and so I was thankful to find a new name to read about and learn something new. And Edmonia’s story is quite intriguing – for both her story and her skill she’s my first pick for Women’s History Month 2018, although she’s more an artist than a modern STEM icon (in other words: STEAM!). Born to an Afro-Haitian father and a mother with African-American and Mississauga Ojibwe tribe lineage, Edmonia incorporated her own genealogy into her work (samples below). She studied at Oberlin College (Ohio) before eventually moving to Rome where she practiced during the bulk of her career. You can see several images of her work at the Smithsonian’s SAAM site, read her story here at Biography.com or here at Artsy.net. Someone has also been hosting EdmoniaLewis.com for many years with details of her story.

Here are samples of Edmonia’s work – gorgeous, stunning sculptures:
