Popular sculpture to remain in Wall Street until March next year
THE popular bronze statue of a young girl staring down a bull on Wall Street will stay in place until March next year, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday.
Initially installed on March 7 for one week, the “Fearless Girl” sculpture appeared in media around the world, seen by many as a defiant symbol of women’s rights under the administration of President Donald Trump, who bragged about sexually assaulting women.
The exhibit of artist Kristen Visbal’s work was first extended until April 2 and is now set to run until next year’s International Women’s Day on March 8.
De Blasio, an outspoken Trump critic, said the statue “means so much to the people of New York”,
