New Urban Monuments: Stand Up Inside Yourself is a collaborative community art project created by city residents and Frazier that examines the current monuments in our public spaces. These monuments shape public memory in America, particularly in Boston. The interactive, innovative project includes a workshop series that explores what we want to remember as makers of our own stories and histories. Workshops will provide information to enable participants to fabricate fiber sculptures that celebrate their new memories and voices. Workshops and exhibitions will be held at the Fairmount Innovation Lab.
