PROTOTYPES/PROPOSALS at Rhodes College’s Clough-Hanson Gallery presents prototype monuments from Monument Lab collaborators Kara Crombie, Michelle Angela Ortiz, Jamel Shabazz, and Marisa Williamson. The exhibition also includes living artifacts of the labs, samples of the public proposal process, and the culminating Report to the City.

As we experience this ongoing moment of intensity and uncertainty around public monuments—especially those that symbolize the enduring legacies of racial injustice and intersectional modes of social inequality—we are reminded that we must find new, critical ways to reflect on the monuments we have inherited and imagine future monuments we have yet to build.
