Tribute In Light 2010

tribute-in-light-nyc-9-600x420At dusk last Saturday, MAS presented its 9th annual Tribute In Light, twin blue beams of light honoring the victims of the September 11 World Trade Center attacks. At a private ceremony held on the site of the memorial, MAS Senior Advisor Frank Sanchis spoke about the beginning of Tribute In Light. “We took a parking lot, built scaffolds, found 88 lights which we had to get from around the country, and set it up that year on the six-month anniversary of the attacks on March 2002,” he said. “The Tribute immediately became popular and caught the public’s imagination, and the Municipal Art Society was inspired to produce it again the next year.” A video clip of his remarks, taken by Bob Karp, can seen below.
