Dread Scott: I’d like to replace the 68-foot-4-inch column and base that for 133 years provided a platform for a figure of the white supremacist general Robert E. Lee with an anti-monument. I’d call it “The Legacy of Slavery Is in the Way of Progress and Will Be Until America, Which Benefits From That Legacy, Has Been Replaced With a Completely Different Society.” From NY Times Op-Art Aug. 11 #teachablemonuments #publicartdialogue @publicartdialogue @dreadscottart #dreadscott
Kenya (Robinson) proposed sanctuary for African Grey Parrots #teachablemonuments #publicartdialogue courtesy NY Times Op-Art Aug. 11 Kenya: “Around each monument, I propose a sanctuary for African gray parrots. A wrought-iron flight cage with elevated walkways, providing a perched perspective, and featuring a cacophony of feathered talkers with unusual catchphrases. Or we could mimic a preschool project by coating the offending objects with peanut butter, shaking seed on the surface — massive feeders across the nation. George Washington Carver would be proud.” @publicartdialogue #kenyarobinson #monuments
Repost from @sheryloring using @RepostRegramApp - I am a finalist in a competition to create a public art tribute to the time when my campus was a woman's college. @Uncg is soliciting comments about the proposals and we'd love to hear from you. My proposal, made in collaboration with @anderson_jonathon is built around 31 illuminated spheres for 31 years as Woman's College. There's a place for comments here: https://lnkd.in/dahTcYf. #publicart #publicspace #university #uncg #uncgalumni @publicartdialogue #publicartdialogue
