Saturday in the Park with Jane

Dear Julia,

Thank you again for inviting me to the ReDedication Ceremony for the “Helping Hands” sculptures created in my honor by Louise Bourgeois. I think CPD has done a lovely job of adorning the space next to Clark House to maximize the significance of Ms. Bourgeois’ artistic message (a monument to a great woman need not look the same as the “typical” monument to a great man). 

Attached is the quote Jan Lisa Huttner read from my book Twenty Years at Hull-House augmented by some of Joan Pomaranc’s photos.

Best wishes,

“Jane Addams”
