Does the erection or removal of statues and murals, like those of Frank Rizzo and Christopher Colombus, change our understanding of history and that for future generations? How has public petition and protest influenced these creations, today and in the past? How do monuments ignite learning and change?
Join the Friends Free Library and Germantown Friends School virtually for a Community Writers Series evening with Paul Farber ’01, PhD, Artistic Director and Co-Founder of Monument Lab, on September 29 at 7 p.m. Farber will discuss his two books - A Wall of Our Own: An American History of the Berlin Wall and Monument Lab: Creative Speculations for Philadelphia - and share reflections and analysis about the role monuments play in commemorating leaders, events, movements, and history.
