Brown Visual Art


“It’s almost as if, every year on September 11, it’s sending out a kind of Morse code saying, ‘Life is here. We exist.’”

Associate Professor of Visual Art Paul Myoda, co-designer of the "Tribute in Light" installation seen in the New York City skyline every year on September 11, vividly remembers the day the piece debuted nearly 20 years ago.
