Studio 365: Day 254

Day 254 ii

Freedom Tower IV

To commemorate a day that is forever etched into our collective memories, today’s monochromatic Freedom Tower IV follows Versions I, II and III from February of this year after our moving visit to The National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York.

Day 254 iii

The letters for this quote from Virgil in the Memorial Hall of the Museum were forged from remnant World Trade Center steel by blacksmith Tom Joyce. Surrounding the quote is an art installation entitled Trying to Remember the Color of the Sky on that September Morning by the artist Spencer Finch who created the work “to pay tribute to the victims and to explore both the personal and the collective nature of memory.”
