come as you wish, stay as long as you’d like
At a time when our nation questions the efficacy of effigy, Arizona Arts Live is creating a space for the community to further explore the conversation around monuments and their meaning. Australian artmaker, Craig Walsh challenges the traditional concept of monuments to celebrate living, contributing, members of our Southern Arizona community.
Monuments will take place each night from October 29 through November 29 in the trees of the University of Arizona. Projecting the faces of some of our local heroes in an outdoor environment that allows for physical distancing will provide the community an opportunity to engage with and enjoy this work at their own pace each evening.
