Monument Avenue: General Demotion/General Devotion is an international design competition that challenges planners, architects, landscape architects, designers, artists and individuals to reimagine the entirety of Monument Avenue. This project provides a unique opportunity to use design to enter into a dialogue about race, memory, the urban landscape and public art. These entries and their exhibition consider how Richmond lives with its past.

All competition entries are displayed below in no particular order. Images are high-resolution and may take a few seconds to load.

Entries are exhibited at the Valentine until December 1, 2019. In November 2019, the jurors’ final decision will be announced. The People’s Choice Award, selected from all of the entries, will also be revealed at this time. Please visit the exhibition to vote your choice.
