A mural painted by 9/11 families in the Feel the Music! mural project will be unveiled at Tribute WTC Visitor Center on August 18th, 2011.
The painting, titled â€œTree in Bloomâ€, is one of ten murals created by 9/11 families in Feel the Music!, between October 2010 & July 2011. The murals are intended to be reflective of the journey of the thousands of individuals impacted by 9/11. To give an idea of its size, â€œTree in Bloomâ€ measures 56â€ x 46â€.
The painting will be on display at Tribute WTC Visitor Center, 120 Liberty Street, NYC 10007, from August 18th, 2011, through the week of September 26, 2011.
â€œThe simple grace and evocative beauty of â€˜Tree in Bloomâ€™ is stunningâ€, said Feel the Music! Founder/Executive Director Valerie Ghent. â€œA true collaborative effort, from start to finish, with all the family members working together to create a moving expression of their journey.â€ A family member who worked on the painting said, â€œIt was wonderful to create something that was so meaningful to us and that reflects what we have learned in Feel the Music!, both artistically and as a group.â€
