Twenty minutes after taking this photo the south tower collapsed killing all eleven firefighters on board.
They are true heroes and may…

The image I'm submitting is a collage I dedicated to Carole La Plante , afriend who perished in 9-11. It's a collage consisting of my original art & patriotic images.

This is one of my early proposal drawings for a new World Trade Center complex: twin towers like the first, but radically different in form from the sleek, pure Modernism of the original towers--and several floors taller. The "spiral" form steps…

Scrute sur un pont

Une foule de gens
Qui se cachent des lendemains
Avec des pensées sans excuses
Enlacés les uns aux autres
Veulent passer…
Devant le…

This was sent to me by a friend of mine. I guess it was drawn by a child in PA. who is 12! Perhaps there is hope after…

The image I am submitting is a painting that I did after 911. The idea came to me in part from a photo I had seen on TV and in part from an idea my son gave me along with a plea to create something so we would never forget. The image of the statue…

This piece is called "Requiem" and is an 11 foot by 4 foot hand painted silk banner that hangs in the Chapel of the National Episcopal Church Center in mid-town Manhattan. The following poem accompanies the banner.
