World War I Monuments of CT.

November 7, 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm

As WWI ended, American communities hurried to memorialize the great efforts of their sons and daughters. Government leaders, artists, historians, and the monument industry promoted ideas from simple tablets to monoliths. Memorials throughout Connecticut exemplify this entire range of monumental styles. Having visited and cataloged more than 220 monuments throughout Connecticut, Richard Franklin Donohue will display images of the monuments and explore trends in their design and placement, with special emphasis placed on Willimantic and surround towns.
