Ada Geo (1917-1992) is the pseudonym of woman sculptor Adina Georgescu Medrea, student and wife of sculptor Cornel Medrea. The artist did several works dedicated to the human body, especially to feminine figures. In Mamaia, several works of the artist were unveiled in the 1960’s, as part of the communist regime’s development and systematization program for the seaside. In the 2000’s, numerous sculptures placed in the Mamaia resort in the 1960’s and 1970’s have disappeared with no trace, including the works of Ada Geo Medre (for instance, The Girl on the Slide, 1963).
