Spotlight Series: Public Monuments in the Human Landscape

November 10 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Public art and monuments are extremely visible components of our civic life, but do these symbols truly represent our history and values? Large data sets and catalogs of public art offerings help us to analyze the human landscape, including who is honored in our public spaces, and whose contributions to civic life are misrepresented or unrecognized. Murals visualize communities and current events, and expressing political views can be dangerous for muralists. This panel of scholars and public art practitioners will discuss Monument Lab’s National Monument Audit as well as regional perspectives on our substantial, but incomplete, collection of murals and monuments.
