They All Fall Down: Confederate Monument Removal Cases & Public Art Policy

Entertainment & Sports Law 2020: Webcast Series

Although the Entertainment and Sports Law Annual Forum was unable to take place this Spring, the Executive Council has planned a webcast series in order to offer high-quality programming to practitioners. This webcast is the third in the series.

What place, if any, do Confederate monuments have in the public sphere? That question has been a hotly contested (and litigated) topic. But in such cases, courts and advocates alike have failed to expressly address these monuments as public art. Professor Kristi Arth provides an in-depth look at the lawsuits filed to prevent various monuments from being removed, outlines emergent linguistic trends in the courts’ opinions related to public art policy, and creates a framework for how public art theory can better inform advocacy and judicial decision-making in these types of cases. Arth is an Assistant Professor of Law at Belmont University College of Law; and prior to entering the academy, she was a partner at Bradley. She holds a master’s degree in Arts Policy & Administration in addition to her juris doctorate.
