November 19, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free
Image of sculpture of fallen hands.

What is the difference between a public monument and a work of public art? When do civic creations such as statues and murals outlive their aesthetic value? How should we treat those that are now socially dead?

Join Renee Conroy for this talk that will consider recent expressions of resistance that utilize and impugn community sculptures, with special focus on examples from Chicago and the Calumet Heritage region.
