“ Gone but never forgotten”
Reprint from past article in the Times...
What were you doing 40 years ago? Artist Lisa Fazio - spent a pleasant day on a date sketching the NYC skyline from the Brooklyn Pier. This is significant because what she sketched actually happened years later on 9/11.
Her artwork, along with only 30 other artists' nationwide is now part of the West Baton Rouge Museum in a Cathartic Art Exhibit: "Remembering September 11".
“For composition reasons, I placed a helicopter in the sky and a plane heading toward the Twin Towers.”, she wrote in her essay for the museum show. “Who could have guessed that a plane would affect the world so profoundly, and how innocently I rendered it years ago. It was normal sky activity I placed in the sky but who knew it was an early premonition.”
Fazio decided to revise her illustration out of respect for those who didn’t return, along with their families. She removed the plane and framed the skyline with the names of all who died.
Fazio’s new piece entitled “Gone But Not Forgotten”“represents the collective spirit of the souls of everyone who lost their life on that fateful day. Each were born alone, yet died as one. The 2,762 names form the frame of the artwork. From a distance they are indistinct. When viewed up close, there is the sheer emotional impact of each individual who died.”
Prints are available and a portion of the proceeds year after year are donated to Comfort Zone Camp to help send grieving children to camp.
