9/11 Memorial & Museum

I know lately I've been bragging about my work being in collections of different museums and institutions (MoMA, SFMOMA, The Smithsonian), but I didn't mention before one which is very close to my heart. Not only because I'm a New Yorker, but also because I witnessed the first airplane hitting World Trade Center on September 11th.

Later I felt the urge to create this art called Still Standing which suggests that, in a spiritual sense, the Twin Towers are still in existence. The number of figures I used to construct the image approximates the number of victims of the tragic event.

Now I'm honored that this art was chosen to be part of The National September 11 Memorial & Museum's collection.
