This event is part of the Black Communities Conference in Durham, N.C.
Initiated by the NC African American Heritage Commission, this panel discussion will explore how public art can recognize, reveal and reclaim African American heritage sites. Following a brief overview of specific public art projects, the panel will examine current public art issues including how public art shapes our shared memory of public events, best practices in public art and strategies for people interested creating projects in their community.
