Let There Be Light – The Fifth Anniversary of Tribute in Light

On Monday, September 11, the beams of Tribute in Light were visible once again over the skies of Lower Manhattan. To mark this, the fifth anniversary of 9/11, and help ensure that Tribute in Light can shine in coming years, the Municipal Art Society has printed 2,000 special edition R.O. Blechman posters (see right) which are available for purchase at $250 for signed copies and $50 for those unsigned. Net proceeds go to the Tribute in Light Fund.

The MAS has reached an agreement with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to stage Tribute in Light through 2008 from an MTA facility just south of the World Trade Center site. The illumination was conceived by a group of talented New York artists and architects and first produced in March 2002. Tribute in Light is made possible by a grant from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, which is funded through Community Development Block Grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
