After a year of questioning the figures and causes honoured by statues across the US, artists and foundations are choosing to change the conversation
While a number of Confederate monuments have been torn down – notably, in Wisconsin and Maryland following the rightwing rallies in Charlottesville – a number of new monuments are also going up across America.
This new school of public sculptures, monuments and plaques, range from lifelike portraits of millennial rappers to boulders honouring the lives lost in the Orlando massacre. It proves a new vision is under way to commemorate America's updated values.
