AIA Northern Virginia
Call for Submissions – Memorial to African Americans Enslaved by William & Mary
Posted Wednesday, September 19

The Lemon Project Committee on Memorialization (LPCOM), acting on behalf of William & Mary and its Board of Visitors, invites submissions for a design concept for a memorial to the men, women and children whose labor and lives William & Mary held in bondage from its founding until the Civil War. They seek a conceptual design for a physical memorial that establishes a new place of community and contemplation within or directly engaging with the setting of William & Mary's Historic Campus. By virtue of its scale, location, materials and narrative content, the conceptual design will create a noble and lasting tribute to the memory of the people who built and served the university.

Submissions are due October 12 by 5:00p.
