Paul Farber (Monument Lab: Creative Speculations for Philadelphia) discusses his work as a co-founder of The Monument Lab, which works with community members to reimagine public spaces through stories of social justice and equity; with Justin Reid, director of Community Initiatives at Virginia Humanities.

“Monument Lab has taken the current controversies of public art and the future place of monuments and creatively engaged the public in serious and often playful ways. Using the city of Philadelphia with its prominent history and diversity as its inspiring springboard, each project described soars with meaning and conviction. Monument Lab leads the nation in working to achieve cities where public art is embraced by all their occupants and this book reflects their many unique stories.”—Elizabeth Goldstein, President, The Municipal Art Society of New York
