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. 

Meet our Monuments

Plan your visit:

Employees, students, and visitors must use face coverings in all UArizona locations, both indoors and outdoors, in accordance with UArizona’s Administrative Directive.

All visitors are encouraged to download Covid Watch Arizona, the University’s new, free and anonymous exposure notification app.

Monuments starts daily at sunset. Allow between 30 minutes and 1 hour to enjoy the experience.

Parking is available at Tyndall Garage, a short walk from Centennial Hall. Garage parking is free on Saturdays and Sundays, though exceptions may apply. On-street parking is also available in the Main Gate neighborhood.
