A one-day symposium sponsored by the Grace Slack McNeil Program for Studies in American Art at Wellesley College and Historic Deerfield, Inc.
9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Wellesley College, Wellesley, Mass.
As southern Civil War memorials have become a flashpoint for politics and protest, it is vital that we turn the same critical gaze to New England’s public monuments. This day-long symposium will explore commemorations of people, places, and events in New England's past, with attention to design, construction, naming/renaming, reception, preservation, destruction, and/or reconfiguration.
Registration information coming soon.
