CVAD Honors Art Appreciation: Public Sculpture in Denton

Paula Lupkin Honors Art Appreciation Denton Courthouse Square Fieldwork

This semester, students in CVAD's Honors Art Appreciation Class are studying recent controversies over the placement of sculpture memorializing the Confederacy in public spaces.

On Monday, November 13, Professor Paula Lupkin led the class in fieldwork to Denton's Courthouse Square and Civic Center to study two local artworks that address the role of Civil War, race, and collective memory in our community: the Confederate Soldier Memorial and the Quakertown murals.

Two guest speakers presented and lead Q & A sessions: Willie Hudspeth, activist and president of the Denton NAACP and Paula Blincoe Collins, local artist and sculptor of the civic center murals.
