New York, New York –
Right after September 11th there was a photography exhibit in Soho that attracted streams of New Yorkers and out of towners. It was called "Here Is New York" and was a visual remembrance of the Twin Towers and the aftermath of the attacks in Lower Manhattan. The Brooklyn Arts Council will be marking the fifth anniversary of September 11th, this fall, with a commemorative exhibit: "Here Was New York: Twin Towers in Memorial Images." They're soliciting photos that document how the Towers have remained in our lives through visual expressions...in street murals, homemade shrines, custom paintings on trucks and so on. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, August 31st.
