Hey folks, the talk I was going to do tonight at AS220 in Providence has been postponed to Friday, from 5-6:30, due to pending snow that has everyone freaking out. Please come by if you're in Providence!
"I Brake For Historical Markers"
5-6:30pm, Friday, February 12
Pittsburgh-based artist Shaun Slifer will present a slideshow and discussion of problematic and progressive historical monuments and plaques with an eye towards remembering the often-buried stories of struggles for social justice. Slifer will discuss the Howling Mob Society's 2007 guerilla historical marker series commemorating the Great Railroad Strike of 1877.
