The Transformation of the Memorial Landscape

What do our monuments really say about our history and ourselves? We’ll talk this hour with University of Pittsburgh Chair of the History of Art and Architecture Kirk Savage, who’ll lecture at the Sixth Floor Museum this evening. His books include “Monument Wars: Washington, D.C., the National Mall, and the Transformation of the Memorial Landscape” (University of California Press, 2009) and “Standing Soldiers, Kneeling Slaves: Race, War, and Monument in Nineteenth-Century America” (Princeton, 1997).
