Monuments Reimagined: Public Art in Our Communitie...

Presented by Harvard Ed Portal at Harvard Ed Portal

Public art has the potential to make a community a more vibrant and welcoming place. Free and accessible to all, it also has the power to provoke debate about our shared cultural experience. As engaged citizens call for the removal of certain public monuments that evoke harmful systems, the conversation about the role of public art in our communities gains momentum.

On October 5, join City of Boston Chief of Arts & Culture Kara Elliott-Ortega, Harvard Graduate School of Design professor Sara Zewde, and Cambridge-based artist Katherine Megumi Showzawa for a panel discussion moderated by Art in Between co-founder Brian Hone, focused on the future of public art and its potential to express our collective public values.
