WE NEED YOU ALL FOR OUR 9/11 TRIBUTE
3,000 PEBBLES IN MEMORIAM
The Angel Orensanz Foundation joins the city of New York for the commemorative events in the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. We will host tribute to remember and commemorate the tragic events that took place at the World Trade Center. For this tribute we are summoning up 3,000 people to visit us and get involved in 3,000 Pebbles In Memoriam.
We earnestly invite you to come to this 160-year old building in the heart of Lower Manhattan and to participate in a simple, poetic act aimed at mourning the death of 3,000 people ten years ago now. Another 3,000 pebbles will be waiting at the entrance for visitors to come, pick them up, and place them indoors, on the floor of the Foundation. By progressively piling them up, a symbolic, geometric pattern will be shaped. A silent, evocative and reflexive gesture with roots in many religious traditions that is aimed at bringing people together.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to contemplate a multidisciplinary installation inspired by the consistent inventiveness of sculptor Angel Orensanz. He created a performance and audiovisual piece in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks to reflect its magnitude and the subsequent emotions that were prompted.
We encourage all of you to come and join us on Sunday in this symbolic tribute to honor the dead and the missing and gather around communal, insightful thoughts.
The Angel Orensanz Foundation will be open on Sunday, September 11 from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
