Paper Monuments is a series of opportunities, events, and interventions designed to elevate the voices of the people of New Orleans, as a critical process to creating symbols of our city that represent our collective vision, and to honor the erased histories of the people, places, movements, and events that have made up the past 300 years as we look to the future.
Paper Monuments is a megaphone for New Orleanians to use art and storytelling to answer the question:
What is an appropriate monument to our city today?
The Pythian Temple project was a collaboration between Chris Daemmrich, artist, and Amber Wiley, storyteller. Paper Monuments is the brainchild of Sue Mobley and Bryan C. Lee Jr., founders of Colloqate Design.
