Saturday, 9/11 6pm Commemoration Event
On Saturday, 9/11 at 6pm, there will be a commemoration of the Rise Project - a monument dedicated to the first responders of that fateful day 20 years ago.
In St. Pete’s Warehouse District, on the ArtsXchange Campus, the monument will feature a 30-foot copper phoenix wing and a half-moon wall featuring hundreds of hand-painted tiles. But the beam will be the centerpiece, hoping to emulate America post-9/11 as a phoenix rising from the ashes.
The monument is not complete yet, but it seems fitting to install the last steel piece from the World Trade Center as we honor those who helped the nation recover.
