Speakers: Ivan Schwartz and Don Carleton
On February 9, 2023, the Briscoe Center hosted this fascinating conversation between Executive Director Don Carleton and Ivan Schwartz, renowned sculptor and founder of StudioEIS, a design studio located in Brooklyn that is responsible for many significant commemorative sculptures of iconic figures from American history. Their discussion opens with the beginning of Studio EIS and goes on to explore what and who we choose to commemorate in the development of our national symbols.
How is public history shaped and interpreted? The StudioEIS Archive speaks to the ways in which the past is memorialized through historical sculpture.
