As any Americans are trying to better understand the larger meaning and purpose of public memorialization, this Presidential Site bicentennial exhibit explores the origins and interconnections between two of Indianapolis’ most prominent monuments.

From a groundbreaking and iconic tribute from the people of Indiana to the everyday soldiers and sailors who fought and died in service of their country, to a grassroots expression of a community’s gratitude and admiration for their friend and neighbor, the 23rd president of the United States. Along the way, surprising and unexpected stories abound—from the real story of Lady Victory to how school children across the state came together to honor a Hoosier soldier, lawyer, and statesman.

The exhibit delves into the public spirit that inspired both memorials, and how an ambitious community’s vision became a reality—serving as a mirror of their era and ours, and continuing to help define public perceptions of Indiana’s capital city today.

From Monument to Monumental exhibit will hold its grand opening on Thursday, March 11 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. on the third floor of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site. If you aren’t able to attend in person, don’t worry, we will provide a virtual option!

Due to social distancing requirements, we will be limiting guests to no more than 8 people every half-hour. Face masks will be required and social distancing will be maintained. Please note that reservations are required.

Please direct questions to the Special Events & Marketing Manager: 317-631-1888 or events@bhpsite.org.
