Civic memorials lend a community a deeper sense of identity through history and artistic richness. They are often found in public spaces, including plazas, parks, commercial and government buildings, and even schools.
An ideal way for cities or organizations to recognize the loss of a prominent citizen through tragic circumstances, they allow the person’s legacy to live on. Public memorials can also serve to celebrate the life of a person that has great significance in the community and to honor their legacy and a life well-lived.
Monument created for former mayor of New York City, Ed Koch.
Memories That Enrich Our Communities
Civic markers must not always be dedicated to people–they can also indicate the site of an important historical event and call out its significance for now and in the future, ensuring it is etched into the community’s collective conscience.
Because public sculpture and memorials add to the cultural richness of a community, they also inspire a sense of civic pride. They function as educational tools, fostering a love of history and the arts and creating a sense of continuity. Civic memorials can even function as landmarks, orienting locals and visitors.
