Our community partner, public art and history project Paper Monuments, will be tabling with crafts, public response forms, and and free posters.
Paper Monuments is a public art and public history project which uses art and storytelling to propose answers to the question, “What is an appropriate monument for the city of New Orleans today? Check out their gallery, and keep an eye on their Open Calls.
