Nov 21 #MonumentLab Is a Wrap by: Laura Kochman ShareFacbookTwitterEmail A local dance troupe performs at the Marconi Plaza Saturday Spotlight event for Monument Lab. October 28, 2017. Photo by Steve Weinik. After nine intense weeks, we’re sad, satisfied, gratified, grateful: our biggest project ever has ended. Monument Lab wrapped up with the last installation of Logan Squared at the Free Library on November 19. We’ll be crunching data from your monument proposals over the next several months, but until then, we’re still just loving all of your reactions on social media. We saw close to 2,000 posts using the hashtag #MonumentLab on Instagram alone! Check out some of our favorites below, and explore the hashtag to see more photos and videos from people who posted throughout the project. Stoop sitting is a thing we do in Philly. After all, we are the “city of neighborhoods.” We plant our booties and chat about politics, the weather, gossip and of course, sports! @muralarts #MonumentLab ( a public art and history project) placed temporary monuments all across the city including here at Washington Square. I wanted to highlight the inevitable matchup between our @PhiladelphiaEagles and the Cowboys. It’s a little over a week away but everyone in Philly can’t stop talking about it ( I know I can’t) And if these two fans can peacefully debate how the Eagles are going to crush dem boys, then anything is possible. The “stoops” end Nov 12 but Monument Lab is around till Nov 19- yes, the day of the big game! So check out the other installations before u cheer on the birds.

Looking for other spaces to install ‘Flores de Libertad’ for a month run or more. Please send suggestions both in Philly and across the country. #endfamilydetention #shutdownberks #monumentlab photo courtesy of @patty_barrera during our 3am working delirium ❤️ A post shared by Michelle Angela Ortiz (@michelleangelaortiz) on Nov 6, 2017 at 6:36am PST A monumental occasion #monumentlab A post shared by Tango Bango Bingo Bongo (@restingbitchphace) on Nov 4, 2017 at 8:58pm PDT #24hourmonument with Marisa Williamson for #monumentlab @monument_lab A post shared by Daniel Oliver Tucker (@miscprojects) on Nov 3, 2017 at 5:47pm PDT Never lose sight of the big picture 📷 @lostcontrast #phillymuralarts #monumentlab A post shared by Dudley Music (@dudley_music) on Nov 2, 2017 at 12:05pm PDT Monument Lab / Klip Collective at Marconi Plaza.
