CHICAGO MONUMENTS PROJECT COMMUNITY PARTNER EVENT !
Artists’ Visions: Latina/x & LGBTQ Histories, Monuments for Chicago’s Future
Register in advance for this webinar here:
What are Chicago’s erased and obscured Latina/x histories, including LGBTQ histories? What are Latina/x perspectives on existing monuments and visions for new monuments for 21st Century Chicago? How can Chicago monuments help us imagine and rebuild a city with more racial, gender and LGBTQ visibility and justice?
This panel brings together important and emerging voices in Chicago’s Latina/x and LGBTQ arts and public history to address these questions. After the panelists’ conversation, we will engage those who are interested in and/or passionate about these issues in a Q & A.
