Monument Avenue: General Demotion/General Devotion is a national competition to conceptually reimagine what Monument Avenue could look like and to shape the future of Richmond.
Hosted by the Storefront for Community Design, in partnership with VCU's School of the Arts, the competition asks participants to reconsider Monument Avenue's role as a historic urban boulevard, its viability as a 5.4 mile interurban connector, its presence in Richmond given the city's emergence as a diverse and progressive city, and its significance in the history of the United States and in the current debate about Confederate statues in public spaces.
There will be $10,000 in total prize money awarded by a panel of 5 jurors representing the professions of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, and American history.
The deadline to register for the competition is September 15th.
