Let’s Make Herstory Happen – Support Modern Athena

To honor and celebrate women in art and the world at large, I am fundraising to carve a sculpture that captures the strength, wisdom, and beauty of the female figure at the same scale of Michelangelo’s David РModern Athena

My fundraising goal is $400,000 Your tax-deductible contribution will help me obtain the marble for the 17 foot version, execute the carving over a 2/3 year period, afford exhibitions, and develop a documentary film to increase awareness of this important art form. Donate Now
