Have you ever thought about how the art in museums, our monuments, and public art – are mostly made by and for men? And did you know that underrepresentation can foster feelings of inferiority and perpetuate implicit biases? How do we teach our girls to recognize and understand why this is, so they aren't subconsciously limiting themselves by what they see?
In Episode 19 of “Know Them, Be Them, Raise Them,” Neysa Page-Lieberman, Monuments to Movement co-founder and co-artistic director, and a curator, lecturer, writer, educator, tackles representation in public art. She chats with host Carmelita Tiu about her work, the Monuments to Movement project, and the importance of seeing public works that reflect the diversity and richness of our communities.
