On January 25, 2013, artists and scholars from across the country as well as many leaders from Indianapolis’s arts and culture community gathered for the Art, Race, Space symposium. This interdisciplinary symposium explored the complicated relationships among art, race, and civic space. Participants began by reflecting on artist Fred Wilson’s E Pluribus Unum, a public art commission for the Indianapolis Culture Trail that was cancelled in 2011 due to controversy surrounding Wilson’s appropriation of a freed slave figure from the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Building on the ideas about race, class, visual culture, and democratic debate that emerge from the Indianapolis project, presenters addressed related historical and contemporary examples from other parts of the United States. The Art, Race, Space project continues with dialogue on social media and broadcast of portions of the symposium, and the development of curriculum to support continuing conversations in formal and informal learning settings about these issues.
