Place of remembrance

'A time before 9/11"

A 4 foot Acrylic painting which the Artist hopes to use for the basis
of an
18 foot Tile Mural.

This past Sunday, the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, seemed to put to rest an unease which has pervaded our country. The ceremonies were understated in a very, very dignified way which echoed the marvelously thoughtful placement of the endless pools where the Trade Centers once stood. The beautiful bronzes engraved along the top edge of the cascading falls and the trees lining and giving protection from the harsh stone and steel city.

A firm named Snohetta, which means Snow Hood, in Norwegian created the only above ground building on the 8 acre memorial site. I invite you read my recent article about these Architects and 9/11 in the September 9, 2011 issue of the Norwegian American Weekly.

Best regards, Bill Osmundsen
