Excerpt

In presenting to the public this exhibition of American sculpture within these grounds and buildings, the National Sculpture Society gratefully acknowledges its indebtedness to the generous offer of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, of the American Geographical Society, of the American Numismatic Society, of the Hispanic Society of America, and of the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation.

The aim has been to make the exhibition thoroughly national in scope. A special effort has therefore been put forth to bring together the best work from all parts of the country, as well as that of Americans now abroad.

In the present installation, a considerable number of important monuments can be shown only by photographs. However, since the sculptural exhibits range in size from the coin to the colossal, the recent progress of American sculpture in all its branches is well indicated. Such a comprehensive exhibition by our Society would hardly be possible without the sympathetic cooperation of our lay members, to whom, now as in the past, our cordial thanks are due.

HERMONA. MACNEIL, President.
