Monument Lab, Field Trip, 2020

Monument Lab Team: Kanyinsola Anifowoshe, Paul Farber, Patricia Eunji Kim, Hilary C.V. Leathem, Sue Mobley, and Yannick Trapman-O'Brien. Produced with support from the Center for Public Art and Space at the University of Pennsylvania Weitzman School of Design. Monument Lab Field Trip was designed and illustrated by Mike Murawski and Bryna Campbell with Super Nature Adventures. 

Field Trip is a community-engaged activity conceived by Philadelphia-based public art and history studio Monument Lab. Field Trip invites investigation into local monuments in any community, generates questions about art and justice in public space, and seeks proposals for new ideas for monuments. Accessible both online and in person at the USF Contemporary Art Museum, the hands-on activity guide can be conducted safely in public space or from home using Street View, Google Earth or other online tools. 

Share your ideas, questions, drawings, and photos from your Field Trip with Monument Lab on social media. Tag @Monument_Lab and use #MonumentLabFieldTrip to connect with others.
