Biography Judith Weller
From Tel Aviv, Israel, Judith Weller created a genre work of sculpture that remains a tribute to laboring people from all over the United States. She first came to America as an exchange student in 1957, and in 1978, she submitted a sculpture of her tailor father sitting at a sewing machine to the exhibition of the National Sculpture Society. Her work was 24 inches in height, and someone from the Ladies Garment Workers Union saw it, and working with the artist, the Union sponsored a much larger version as a monument to all garment workers in America.
Eight-feet high with a cost of $35,000.,and sponsored by forty-three unions plus banks and trade associations, it was placed at 1411 Broadway at West 40th Street in a showroom building.
