on the evening of the event to access the live lecture.
Today many public monuments are controversial, but in the early twentieth century they were objects to behold—none more so than Canada’s Vimy Memorial in France, a destination for over 700,000 visitors each year. This talk addresses the iconic structure, its construction, and the role of commemorative statues in art history.
