Statues and Sculpture

Public statuary used to be a civic-minded way to commemorate people and events. But notice that nearly all of these statutes were made before 1940. Why have we stopped commemorating success and valor?

A goal is to add photos of each of these pieces of public sculpture - please help!

The fundamental reference is the Smithsonian Art Inventory Catalog.
