Sculpture of Willa Cather, Writer

Behind the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley

Tuesday Treasures / Wordless

Willa Cather (1873-1947) was born in nearby Gore, VA.


  1. A lovely tribute. I know that she used to spend a lot of time on Grand Manan Island in New Brunswick, but I don’t believe that I have read any of her works.

  2. ...I like, "Make a Memory, Not a Mark!"

  3. Beautiful sculpture! Take care, have a wonderful day!

  4. Great sculpture to memorialize Willa Cather. I always think of her as an author of the western states, so it's good to see she's appreciated at the Museum of the Shenandoah. Now I know the sculptor, Littleton Alston was an black artist of Virginia.

    1. Willa Cather spent her early childhood in Virginia. She did write one book set in Virginia.

  5. Quite impressive! Thank you so much for sharing at

  6. That's a beautiful statue! I will be taking a walk behind the museum next time we go. Thanks Linda!

  7. A beautiful sculpture.

    All the best Jan
