For most of American history, memorials were sober classical objects that stated a single theme in powerful terms: the tragic dignity of the Lincoln Memorial or the heroic authority of the Washington Monument. But in the last generation, the commemorative object has given way to the therapeutic memorial, which seeks not to celebrate but to heal. In this illustrated talk, Professor Lewis will look at the significant memorials of the last generation, successful and unsuccessful, including the 9/11 Memorial in New York and the Martin Luther King Memorial in Washington, D.C.  Part of the Distinguished Professor series at the Vero Beach Museum of Art.
