“Statues” Film Screening and Conversation

America has become a deeply polarized country, and Louisville is grappling both with that trend and with a public reckoning concerning the city’s long history of racial tensions. Documentary filmmaker Morgan Atkinson’s new film, “Statues,” takes on these challenges as they concern the local controversies around public statues – and public art generally. Join us for a screening of the film and a conversation with the filmmaker!
