Smarthistory: At Risk Cultural Heritage Education Series, Phase 2

Production of twenty videos and five framing essays about the preservation, destruction, and re-creation of art.

ARCHES: At Risk Cultural Heritage Education Series brings the public to museums, temples, and excavations both remote and close to home to discuss dangers facing our shared cultural heritage. ARCHES brings together art historians, archaeologists, preservationists, and other experts to share their knowledge so that the public can go beyond the headlines to investigate the complex issues at stake at a time when our monuments, architecture, antiquities, and artworks—are under threat from war, looting, neglect, development, and civil unrest, and all at an unprecedented scale. Leaders across the field of cultural heritage preservation have urged Smarthistory to build on the success of ARCHES. Phase 2 will expand on the geographic breadth of the project and provide a richer intellectual framework so that viewers can explore how the destruction of heritage has been treated through history and across the cultural spectrum from Hollywood to the studios of contemporary artists.
