Monuments and Memory - Lecture - Molly Gwinn @ Weymouth Center | Southern Pines | North Carolina | United States

Monuments speak to us in many different languages as they commemorate moments of national pride, the achievements of leaders, or the tragedy of loss. Some use figures of both heroes and common soldiers to honor the memory of all Americans who served and died for their country. Others rely on the grandeur of architecture … perhaps the most moving are those that preserve the actual places … where history was made.

This lecture will consider how the experience of remembering has changed according to the language the artist uses and the public being addressed.

Lecturer: Molly Gwinn is an art historian who has presented the Spring lecture series in past and has offered classes at the Center for Creative Retirement at Sandhills Community College. She earned her Doctorate from Rutgers University.
