Monumental Change: Addressing the Legacies of Syst...

Presented by BU Arts Initiative and WBUR The ARTery at Online/Virtual Space

How do we engage with our shared histories and culture through monuments, statues and public art? How does that relationship sustain or perpetuate systemic racism? What needs to be done to make change? We’ve seen in recent days how a growing desire from the public to address these legacies with actionable change, particularly around confederate monuments, is met with defiance from some leadership, and action from others.

WBUR senior arts engagement producer Arielle Gray hosts a conversation with 4 expert panelists addressing the nuances of this issue, and what the future of public art could look like.
