Ellen Phillips Samuel Memorial

1933–1961

Description

On a strip of land between the Schuylkill River and Kelly Drive, the Samuel Memorial tells the story of American life through sculpture. Chosen by means of three international exhibitions, the artists included several European immigrants and one from North Africa — fitting for a monument that stresses the nation’s openness, democracy and creative energy. Most of the works are fairly traditional in style, but Jacques Lipchitz’s bold Spirit of Enterprise dominates the central terrace.
