Four Winners Chosen for WTC Site Culture Center

Friday, June 11, 2004

About a year ago more than a hundred cultural institutions submitted proposals and crossed their fingers, hoping to win a spot in the cultural complex being planned for the World Trade Center Site. Yesterday we found out that the four winners are the Joyce International Dance Center, the Signature Theater, the Drawing Center, and a newly conceived Freedom Center. WNYC's Alicia Zuckerman was there for the announcement, and filed this report.

ZUCKERMAN: Yesterday's events played out like a big-time awards show, with copious thank you's to, and from, Governor Pataki, members of the Bloomberg administration, and the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation; special appearances by actors Edward Norton and Matthew Broderick, choreographers Trisha Brown and David Parsons, tap dance powerhouse Savion Glover, and even Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
