Sunday, September 11th, 2011. 10 anniversary of 9/11: Tribute in Light.
“I believe America can be both safe and free. I reject government policies that target groups by race or religion, invade privacy through unchecked surveillance, sanction the use of torture or promote worldwide war without end.”
PLEDGE TO CONTINUE TAKING A STAND FOR FREEDOM
Tribute In Light shine from Dusk to Dawn to honor all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and to serve as a symbol of hope for the city of New York.
History of the Project
Conceived in the aftermath of the September 11th tragedies, Tribute in Light is a temporary artistic gesture bringing together the vision and talent of numerous individuals who, shortly after the attacks, independently envisioned two beams of light rising from downtown New York. Finding support for their ideas, they joined forces in the spirit of the rescue and recovery effort downtown. The creative team consists of architects John Bennett and Gustavo Bonevardi of PROUN Space Studio, artists Julian LaVerdiere and Paul Myoda, architect Richard Nash Gould, and lighting designer Paul Marantz. Production support was provided by two non-profit cultural institutions The Municipal Art Society and Creative Time, with the assistance of Battery Park City Authority.
