Whose art is it anyway?: Public art and collective memory

This panel discussion focused on the role public art plays in the collective memory of communities. The four panel members consisted of Nether, a Baltimore-based mural artist and activist, Jackson Forlini, a historical preservationist, Diana Boros, a St. Mary’s College Political Science professor, and Eric Moed, a public art designer and architect. Each member of the panel spoke approximately 15 minutes, detailing their experience with how public art affects the collective memory of history.
