"Unity Canvas" Art Project Display
The Port Authority of NY and NJ will display the Collaborative, 9/11 Art Project "Unity Canvas" during the month of May 2006. The Unity Canvas Project is an artist-to-artist, New York-based, collective response to the tragedy of September 11.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will be exhibiting a selection of the 300 works from the Unity Canvas. Artists who contributed to the Unity Canvas submitted 12-inch squares of unstretched canvas about 9/11 and the times we live in in 2001 and 2002. Artists used a variety of mediums, including paint, digital, and embroidery to capture their responses to 9/11.
