VIRTUAL EVENT: ($) Rochester Brainery presents: Rochester's Marvelous Monuments and More- May 23 at 10:30 am EDT


*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 05/23/2020
Local monuments and memorials tell interesting stories but, ironically, they can be easy to overlook. In this month of Memorial Day, we will tell the story behind both famous and forgotten monuments and memorials dotting the Greater Rochester landscape and remember the people and events they honor. PLEASE REGISTER AHEAD OF TIME

The plaque next to a highway off-ramp commemorating Lincoln’s brief stop in Rochester; the first statue to memorialize an African-American; the drinking fountain admonishing temperance and the small Statue of Liberty replica in rural village parks; the Highland Bowl (yes, it’s a memorial!)

About the teachers:
This class will be led by members of the Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs), an affiliate group of The Landmark Society of Western New York. The YUPs are an emerging generation of preservationists in the greater Rochester region dedicated to promoting inclusive, modern, and innovative preservation practices to help revitalize communities and our built environment.

Caitlin Meives is a proud (and nerdy) preservationist. She is the co-founder of the YUPs and the Director of Preservation at The Landmark Society. Tyler Lucero is the Preservation Projects Facilitator at The Landmark Society, a member of the YUP Steering Committee, and a former earth and environmental sciences teacher. Christopher Brandt is an architect at Bero Architecture, PLLC, a local history buff, and the Advocacy & Education Chair of the YUPs.
