“Art at the World Trade Center” pays tribute to what was lost


Artist Todd Stone, who lives in Manhattan and Nockamixon Township, announced the exhibition “Art at the World Trade Center,” a historic overview of the arts and the artists at the World Trade Center, supported by Silverstein Properties, opening this month on the 40th floor of 7WTC.

“My work is prominently featured and it is moving to me to have paintings made at 7WTC re-installed there in this historic context,” the founder of the Gallows Run Watershed Association said in his newsletter. “The unveiling of the exhibit will coincide with the launch of an accompanying book that presents the art and architecture of the WTC over the years. There will be a documentary film to showcase this distinctive creative community of artists, alongside a website that will serve as a virtual gallery.”

Along with Stone’s paintings, the exhibit re-creates art destroyed in the 9/11 attack, as well as original architect drawings for the rebuilt World Trade Center, which has become a showcase for public art. The group show gathers artists of all stripes, as diverse artistic expressions converge. Some of the street artists behind the popular murals have been invited to residencies on unfinished floors like Stone’s in the towers and are now his neighbors.
