A Monumental Moment: Considering the Future of Philly's Public Art

Tue, Sep 22, 2020 | 5:30 pm

Over the summer, our country engaged in renewed conversations and reckonings around the racist history of some of our public monuments. Here in Philadelphia, debates around monuments of Frank Rizzo and Christopher Columbus led to those monuments being removed. And conversations continue around a lack of diverse representations in Philly monuments.

Join us as we consider the past, present, and future of Philly’s monuments with the editors and contributors of Monument Lab: Creative Speculations for Philadelphia from Temple University Press.

Featuring a special introduction by artist Hank Willis Thomas.

This program is co-sponsored by Temple Contemporary.

Speakers: Paul M. Farber, Jane Golden, Homay King, Ken Lum, Stephanie Mach, and Karyn Olivier

This program will be presented via Zoom. On the day of the program, use this link to join: https://temple.zoom.us/j/98991829534
