EXHIBIT OPENING (6-9 PM) & PANEL DISCUSSION (7 PM):
Explore the role of power and memory in public art. Learn about the history, controversy, and recent removal of a Confederate monument in Garfield Park and envision an equitable future for the site through this exhibition and panel discussion featuring Dr. Paul Mullins, Jordan Ryan, and Danicia Monét.
The exhibition will include historical information about the Confederate monument in Garfield Park as well as examination of the role of monuments as public art – and the power of public art in (re)shaping memory. Both the exhibit and panel discussion will invite the public to envision a more equitable future for the site, including an interactive VR component guided by the 3D/VR Initiative at University Library—IUPUI.
A partnership between Garfield Park Arts Center and students at IU School of Liberal Arts Museum Studies Program at IUPUI, and Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI.
