Lee Leuning & Sherri Treeby
South Dakota
Materials: Bronze
Selling Price: SOLD!

Artist Statement:

We Can Do It! was the first Juror's Purchase Award winner in the 2020
Our young “Rosie The Riveter” is based on the iconic WWII morale poster promoting the huge role women played in our country’s industrial war production. They took over all the traditional men only tasks. Those men were then freed up to join the ranks of US combat soldiers around the world. Rosie has had a lasting impact on how we now perceive women’s equal role in our society. A whole new world has opened up to our young women.
