Program Description

Event Details

Take a virtual road trip throughout the United States and visit iconic memorials and monuments.

War memorials honor a time when men and women made the ultimate sacrifice, risking their lives for their love for the country. These sites appeal to family members and friends who wish to commemorate their loved ones' service, as well as to those who want to pay their respects to the fallen. We will explore the artistic aspects of these larger than life landmarks. Some of the memorials include The Vietnam memorial, USS Arizona, Korean War Veteran’s memorial, 9/11 memorial.

Register for Famous Memorials & Monuments

We will also look at Contemporary artist, Kehinde Wiley’s monument “Rumor’s of War” which grapples with a current topic of the removal of confederate statues, markers and other monuments that celebrate controversial Civil War era figures from public grounds. Do we remove or destroy these monuments in an effort to rewrite history? Or do we live with them as a reminder of past mistakes?
