As of March 13, the Pulitzer is temporarily closed and postponing all programs during this time out of concern and care for the safety and well-being of our community. Learn more about our response to COVID-19 here.

Join Monument Lab for a publication release party to celebrate the culmination of their research residency at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation. The research team will discuss their guiding research question: “How would you map the monuments of St. Louis?” and the 750-hand drawn maps collected in response to this prompt at over 45 sites around St. Louis last year. This discussion will be moderated by Sue Mobley of Paper Monuments and will include Paul Farber and Laurie Allen of Monument Lab. Pick up a free copy of the publication and learn about the current work and ideas around monuments in St. Louis and how it connects to a national dialogue.

The Public Iconographies publication features a map of both traditional and unofficial sites of public memory marked by members of the public during research meet-ups across the city. Written responses from David Cunningham (Department Chair of Sociology, Washington University), Liz Deichmann (Arts Administrator and Researcher), Jacqui Germain (Poet and Freelance Writer), Nicholas Hoffman (Managing Director of Education and Visitor Experience, Missouri History Museum), Derek Laney (Activist and Researcher), MK Stallings (Poet and Founder of UrbArts), and Geoff Ward (Associate Professor of African and African-American Studies, Washington University) are also included within the publication.
