VIRTUAL LECTURE: Murals and Monuments: The Politics of Public Art

September 1, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

with Mary Kordak, Professor of Art History, University of New Haven

This virtual event is free but registration is required

Presented in partnership with PARJE (Public Art for Racial Justice Education)

Join Mary Kordak as she talks about the history of murals/monuments and how they affect cultural change. This talk touches on the current debates over monuments, how important it is to remember our history, and how public art can help re-tell narratives that were historically racially unjust. Audience members will participate in a Q/A, leaving with a deeper understanding of the history and practice of public art.

This lecture is part of a series “Arts & Advocacy: Methods to Spark Positive Change Through Art” and is made possible with support from Connecticut Humanities.
