Designing Monuments for Tragedy and Triumph

October 18, 2023 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

At this event, artists Steve Locke and Karyn Olivier will speak on a panel with Patricia Eunji Kim regarding the current landscape/dialogue surrounding public commemorative art in the U.S. and the experience of designing a commemorative work of art. They will offer thoughts on design possibilities for the two events we seek to remember—one tragic, and one inspiring. FIT student Rukaiah El will moderate.

Sponsored by the Presidential Scholars Program, the Office of the Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the departments of History of Art and Social Sciences, and the Office of Academic Affairs.

This event is part of the 1863–1963–2023 Project: Civil Rights in FIT’s Neighborhood, which documents the anniversaries of two pivotal events in U.S. civil rights history that took place near or on the FIT campus.

This event is for the FIT community only.
