Craig Walsh, MONUMENTS

What does it mean to honor someone with a monument…and who should be honored in such a public way? Renowned Australian artist Craig Walsh brings us one answer to this question, challenging us to select three people from our community who deserve to be recognized—but who may never rise to public consciousness without his unique method of celebrating them. Walsh projects the living, moving faces of these three Rochesterians on tall trees, where wind and other elements give them dimension and animate them even further. This year's honorees are Patricia McKinney, parent liaison at School No. 23; Liza Robbins Theuman, community organizer to address hunger; and Ronnie Reitter (Seneca, Wolf Clan), storyteller about traditional Seneca culture.

Craig Walsh, MONUMENTS leads us to reconsider the place that monuments hold in our communities and our lives.

Craig Walsh, MONUMENTS is a site-specific art installation in the side parking lot at Third Presbyterian Church, located at the corner of East Ave & Meigs Street. Street parking is available. Those in wheelchairs may be dropped off at Meigs Street and will have step-free access in to the parking lot.

Attendees are encouraged to move around the lot to view the MONUMENTS from different angles.

In the case of inclement weather, the show may need to be cancelled. Should that occur, cancellations will be posted on this website and Fringe social. Check our Facebook, Instagram, and X (formerly Twitter) accounts for up-to-date information.
