As Joan of Arc of 14th Street, attired in battle armor, helmet, sword, and shield, the artist will interact with passersby asking, “Where are the women?” as she leads a call for more monuments of women in New York City. Stepping off her pedestal on the façade of the Jeanne d’Arc apartments, Joan of Arc of 14th Street will march on to Union Square Park, inviting passersby to pose with a placard proclaiming their choice of a woman who deserves a monument in New York City. She will highlight the disparity of 150 monuments honoring men, as opposed to the 5 honoring women.
