J. Westbrook, the author of this poster, will write about her motivations and creative process below.
This poster is meant to provide a starting point for discussing how to deal with contested heritage, by using US Confederate Monuments as an example. How should heritage professionals deal with graffiti and vandalism? Should we remove the monument? Should we leave the graffiti? How do we work to best represent all interests? Credit to the KFVS12 News website for providing the photos and news story about the monument in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Target audience: Heritage professionals (conservators, National Park Service officials, etc)
