Program Description

Description

Controversial Public Art works have been under attack, specifically during 2020. Most are historic figures associated with colonialism or racism. Many of these sculptures have been either toppled or officially removed while new ones will be commissioned to celebrate some of the many women who made important contributions to our history.  There are many interesting cases where  Public Art has been debated, dismissed, moved, discarded, redesigned, renamed or shipped abroad throughout the years.

Please be aware that there is no need to register more than once.

The link for the Zoom Meeting will be sent in an email.
