RISE - INTERACTIVE COMMUNITY EVENT

16 Jul 2021 10:20 AM | Julia Wingle (Administrator)

Do you remember where you were on September 11th, 2001? The memories from that day unite all Americans, and you are now called to create a work of art from those memories.


The new 'Rise' Monument in St. Pete is dedicated to the community heroes and first responders who sacrificed their lives on 9/11. This stunning installation will feature a piece of World Trade Center steel recovered from Ground Zero, a rising, 25-foot tall copper phoenix wing, and a water feature brought to life by hundreds of ceramic tiles contributed by YOU – members of the community who were shaped by the events of that day.  

 

We invite you to make history with us. 


Join us at this FREE event to create a tile that will become part of the monument itself! Instruction and materials will be provided.


In doing so, you will become a part of this continuing history and help our community work toward a more resilient, unified future.


Currently under construction on the ArtsXchange campus, learn more about the project at risestpete.org
