FloGris, PARJE Co-Host Lecture Today on ‘Murals and Monuments: The Politics of Public Art’

The history and practice of public art are the subject of a virtual lecture presented Wednesday, Sept. 1, by the FloGris Museum and PARJE.

OLD LYME — The Florence Griswold Museum is partnering with Public Art for Racial Justice Education to present a free virtual lecture titled Murals and Monuments: The Politics of Public Art at 3 p.m. today, Wednesday, Sept. 1.

Mary Kordak, Professor of Art History at the University of New Haven, will talk 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 Question & Answer session. The intent is that attendees leave 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” is made possible with support from Connecticut Humanities.
