Fight for Freedom Public Art Project in Monument Square Community Forum

March 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Three semi-finalists have been selected to present their proposals for a temporary work to be installed on Monument Square in the fall of 2024.  The works explore ideas to creatively interpret the ways in which people have struggled for the fight for freedom through time in Concord, Massachusetts. Taking inspiration from the 250th anniversary of the start of the American Revolution in 2025, the town seeks artists to consider the ways in which two 19th century Concord residents – Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862) and Ellen Garrison (1823 – 1892) – continued this fight for independence through the abolitionist cause. Through a visually compelling artwork, we hope to more deeply investigate a pivotal time in Concord’s past to bring overlooked stories to the fore and to more actively grapple with our generation’s work to provide liberty and justice for all.

On March 6, 2023 at 6:30 PM, in person and on Zoom, the public is given the opportunity to meet the artists, view presentations and models of the work, and provide feedback that will inform the final projects presented by:

  • Silvana Mizrahi
  • Liz Helfer
  • Krystle Colleen Brown
