Rose, the latest in ArtUp, FABnyc’s rotating public art program. The exhibit will display a panoramic montage of extreme close up details of the World Trade Center’s architectural façade, evoking memories of a simpler, more innocent pre-9/11 moment. The composition will be mounted 14 feet above the sidewalk, on the ArtUp scaffolding
bridge at the 70 East 4th Street Cultural Center.
The colossal Twin Towers, constructed of steel, glass and cement and standing at heights of 1,368 and 1,362 feet, dominated the skyline and the New York imagination for several decades before disappearing in a matter of hours. Brian Rose captures the full evolution of this transformation over the years, with photos that range from the
buildings’ construction and architectural majesty, to their iconic legacy through memorials, graffiti and tattoos. For the artist, the 10th anniversary of 9/11 is a time to celebrate and remember the Twin Towers’ glory, and his photographs portray them and the city they graced, with dignity, understanding, and resolution.
