SALT LAKE CITY, UT, UNITED STATES, April 12, 2022 / -- In conjunction with April being National Poetry Month, Statues.Com has added to its special collection of statues entitled, “SculptHER™” Maya Angelou™, a nationally renowned poet, a noted author, accomplished actress and singer, and a civil rights activist. Statues.Com is memorializing Angelou™ in a 7-inch bust.

Angelou™ (1928–2014), published several collections of poetry, but her most famous was 1971’s collection, “Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water ‘Fore I Die”, which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. She was also a famous literary artist. Angelou™ published 36 books in all. She penned seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry. She was most noted for her acclaimed 1969 memoir, “I know Why the Caged Bird Sings.”

Angelou™ received several honors throughout her career, including two NAACP Image Awards in the outstanding literary work (nonfiction) category, in 2005 and 2009. She had an illustrious acting career, as well. In 1961, Angelou™ appeared in an off-Broadway production of Jean Genet's “The Blacks” with James Earl Jones, Lou Gossett Jr. and Cicely Tyson. Angelou™ went on to earn a Tony Award nomination for her role in the play “Look Away” (1973) and an Emmy Award nomination for her work on the television miniseries “Roots” (1977), among other honors.

A member of the Harlem Writers Guild and a civil rights activist, Angelou™ organized and starred in the musical revue Cabaret for Freedom as a benefit for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, also serving as the SCLC's northern coordinator.

The “SculptHER™” collection, Telling Her Story Through Sculpture” is honoring 24 women over the next two years from the fields of science, civil rights, history, astronomy, aviation, education, the arts, and much more. Statues.Com will present one of these women in a white bonded marble or bronze bust each month.

“After three decades of creating and manufacturing sculptures for buyers around the world, it’s time to celebrate Her Story Through Sculpture! Each bust will amplify the achievements of phenomenal women and serve as visual inspiration for all people,” said Evi Karpos, Project Coordinator at Statues.Com.

These statues are available for sale on and at the Statues.Com website.
