Native artists commemorate 9/11

Artists' commemorations of September 11Artists express ideas the rest of us struggle to put into words. The four works shown here were created shortly after September 11, 2001, to remember the events of that time. Two—a ceramic vessel and a proposal sketch for the memorial at the World Trade Center—were made by well-known artists. Two—a drawing of a Zuni Knife Wing figure and a sculpture of the Twin Towers—were made by people who helped in the recovery effort and clean-up of the trade center site.Comment:  For more on the subject, see Mohawk Ironworkers Helped Build WTC.
