Fredrick Douglass statue
Sculptor Gabriel Koren; Memorial Circle Design and Water Wall Designed by artist Algernon Miller Frederick Douglass Circle, 110th Street & Eighth Avenue near Central Park, Manhattan
Bronze, cast stone, wrought iron, water feature Located at the northwest corner of Central Park, this monument honors the abolitionist, writer, orator, and publisher Frederick Douglass. Harlem-based artist Algernon Miller designed a complex colored paving pattern that alludes to traditional African American quilt designs. Additional features, including wrought-iron symbolic and decorative elements, a water wall, and inscribed historical details and quotations create a rich tableau representing the life of Douglass and the slaves' passage to freedom. A central heroically-sized bronze sculpture, depicting a standing Douglass, was crafted by Hungarian-born artist Gabriel Koren. The plaza and monument opened to the public in 2010.
