Geneva Mercer

Marengo County native Geneva Mercer (1889-1984) was a sculptor who spent much of her life assisting sculptor Giuseppi Moretti. Educator Julia Tutwiler arranged for Mercer to apprentice with Moretti, and many of Mercer's own works were sculpted tributes to Tutwiler, including a memorial tablet at the Alabama Department of Archives and History.
