Falling and Rising: Public Monuments & Cultural Heritage in a Time of Protest
Digital dialogues from experts exploring the roles of monuments, public art, and cultural heritage
The Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History and The Athenaeum Review at the University of Texas at Dallas are pleased to present a digital series of interviews with art historians, historians, and archaeologists that examine the current cultural moment of renewed attention to the role of public art.
Cultural heritage serves as an important locus for crowd activity and public response. Participants in this interview series discuss narratives that monuments communicate, responses they engender, and issues of cultural heritage their protection or destruction raise.
This series of interviews was filmed in Fall of 2020.
