Faculty: Martin Wells
Description: Memorials and the spaces around them are charged zones, time portals where the past and present coexist. Messages and meaning from the time of commission and construction mingle with, inform and complicate those that modern audiences might experience. For example, in recent years, monuments from the Civil War era have been the loci of these changing messages and experiences of reception. The decision to erect a monument is a powerful statement and does not happen in a vacuum. History, culture, politics, social movements affect the lives of monuments, beginning with their conception, and sometimes bringing about their destructions.
