Cate Blanchett gets a sculpture as part of the Statues for Equality project

Hello everyone!

We got amazing news earlier today! Cate has been immortalized in a huge bronze statue!

Cate Blanchett is among the 10 inspirational women that are being honored with a larger-than-life bronze sculpture as part of the #StatuesforEquality campaign by public artists Gillie and Marc. The project aims to balance gender representation in public art and honor women’s contributions to society. Oprah, Pink and Nicole Kidman are also among the first women taking part in this project.
The unveiling of ten bronze statues is set to take place on Women’s Equality Day: August 26th, 2019, on RXR Realty’s iconic Avenue of the Americas in New York City.
Cate’s statue is a creation based on a single image from the 2003 photoshoot by Matt Jones for Movieline’s Hollywood Life magazine and according to the campaign’s official site: “Blanchett is striking a pose in a flowering waratah, a flower native to south-east Australia. As well as having the same country of origin, the waratah is considered an Australian icon for its natural beauty and is often given as a gift, particularly to stage actors on closing night. ”
We can’t wait for this event! Enjoy some photos and visit #StatuesforEquality website to learn more about it!
