City Presents a Women’s History Month Special Exhibition: The Fearless Girl Statue by Kristen Visbal

Post Date:March 11, 2019 5:23 PM

The Fearless Girl Statue by Kristen VisbalThe City of West Hollywood is celebrating Women’s History Month in March with a series of events to recognize and honor women and women’s history.

The City of West Hollywood’s Arts Division is proud to exhibit a replica of the original The Fearless Girl statue by Kristen Visbal, a statue commissioned by SSGA. The original was installed two years ago on March 7, 2017, which was the day before International Women’s Day and just weeks after the historic inaugural worldwide Women’s March events. It famously faced the Charging Bull statue by Arturo Di Modica near Wall Street in New York City, where it immediately became a selfie phenomenon. This replica of the original statue was installed on March 7, 2019 at the West Hollywood Library, where it will be on view during the remainder of March 2019. The library is located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. Regular library open hours are Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. The library is closed on Monday, March 25, in honor of Cesar Chavez Day.
