A monumental project is bound to lead to monumental conversations. In this four-part event series, Monument Lab artists join forces for talks about the role of the artist in relation to monument-making, as well as thoughts on meaning, memory, representation, equity, and dialogue in public space. Artist Jamel Shabazz and a special guest will take part in a public conversation about the Monument Lab exhibition and Shabazz’s project. In Vernon Park, Love is the Message is Shabazz’s tribute to African American veterans and their families, working with portraiture and photography. FREE.
