Our Spotlight Exhibition features Devan Shimoyama’s installation, Untitled (for Tamir), a bejeweled, flower-laden swing set surrounded by glittering teardrops in remembrance of the murder of Tamir Rice.
Join us for a gallery talk led by Andrew W. Mellon Fellow and PhD Student Dakota Stevens, who is pursuing a PhD in Art History with a focus on public art. Stevens will lead a conversation with Rockwell staff and attendees about the visual language of memorials, how the context of a museum, gallery, or public space changes how we see a memorial, and what we take away from informal memorials created in the wake of the tragedies that have shaped the past decade.
