About the Exhibit

I was honored to join this exhibition as part of the Jewish Art Salon and with my memory block, ‘WTC 9-11 Revisited’ become part of a communal voice that believes in the healing power of art. I photographed the twin towers burning and the ash-coated firemen who made it out of the buildings. This is the first time I looked at the images since I took them.

In this commemorative exhibit, the gallery was transformed into a meditative room for visitors to reflect on remembrance, loss and the enduring human spirit. Sculptural shrines, memorial candleholders and a floor relief referenced the specific tragedy of 9/11/01 and became a universal reflection on loss, remembrance and renewal.

As part of the sculptural installation, the artist Tobi Kahn invited 220 friends, colleagues, artists, writers – people of all ages and backgrounds - to create a ‘memory block’. Each block contains a drawing, painting or inscription that evokes their individual memory of Sept. 11th. The blocks were displayed on a table for visitors to read, stack and re-arrange. The building blocks offered the opportunity for community and visitors to the gallery to participate in the exhibit, sharing their memories and emotions.
