Art, Architecture, and Justice

Art historian Sarah Lewis (Harvard University) and architect Michael Murphy (MASS Design Group) discuss the art and architecture of social justice in America. How do our artistic works create the fabric of national memory both cherished and shameful? How do our structures provide the framework of collective conscience? How does culture help us learn from history and inform today’s struggles? This session views our history through the prism of art, in a discussion about how culture and design can address the unspeakable while inspiring progress toward a more just world.
