Amend or Erase: The Challenge of Competing Historical Narratives in Public Art

April 27, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$5.00 – $7.00

They say that beauty, and perhaps art, is in the eye of the beholder. This is certainly true when attempting to tell an historical narrative through public art. The recent and severe battle over Confederate Monuments is a case in point. Who gets to tell their narrative of historical “truth”? When do artists get to have a say, and when do we as the public decide to erase someone else’s version of historical truth? Should we even contemplate erasing certain historical stories, or are we better off amending them? Where do you stand on changing history to suit the present? Matthew Warshauer, Ph.D., Professor of History at Central Connecticut State University will help us explore these questions.
