Seneca Falls, NY - Women's Rights National Historical Park is pleased to announce that it will show the PBS documentary Augustus Saint-Gaudens:Master of American Sculpture this Friday and Saturday, November 18 and 19, at noon.
Hailed by President Theodore Roosevelt as an "artistic genius," Augustus-Saint Gaudens was one of America's greatest sculptors in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Today his home, studio, and beautiful gardens are preserved as Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, located in Cornish, New Hampshire. It is one of nearly 400 sites in America's National Park Service system.
The film is being shown as part of Women's Rights National Historical Park's first Winter Film Festival. The park exists to commemorate and preserve the events of the First Women's Rights Convention that was held in Seneca Falls in 1848. "We are proud to be part of the National Park system, and we invite everyone to join us in celebrating our shared history and culture through film," said Superintendent Tammy Duchesne.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens is one hour long and intended for a general audience. All Winter Film Festival movies will be shown at noon on Fridays andSaturdays, November through April, in the Guntzel Theater, located at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center at 136 Fall Street in downtown Seneca Falls. Because film lengths vary, visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing.
