Seventh Anniversary of Tribute in Light
September 2nd, 2008, 3:10 pm
Commemorating the seventh anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Tribute in Light — two great beams of light — will shine again on 9/11 this year from Lower Manhattan and fill the night sky. The Tribute in Light honors those who were lost on September 11, as well as those who worked so hard to get our city through its greatest trial. The idea for the lights was independently conceived by several artists and designers, who were brought together under the auspices of the Municipal Art Society and Creative Time. The Tribute in Light is now produced annually by the MAS on the September 11th anniversary. It was designed by John Bennett, Gustavo Bonevardi, Richard Nash Gould, Julian Laverdiere, Paul Myoda and lighting designer Paul Marantz. Tribute in Light is made possible by a grant from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation.
