On March 11, 2002, six months after the World Trade Center attacks, two beams of light rose into the night sky from a site just north of Ground Zero in honor of those lost on September 11th and in celebration of the spirit of all the New Yorkers who worked to rebuild and renew the City. The public art installation, Tribute in Light, has now become a permanent addition to the WTC Memorial and is illuminated every September 11th, projecting light four miles into the sky. The creative team for the original Tribute included artists Julian LaVerdiere and Paul Myoda, architects John Bennet, Gustavo Bonevardi, and Richard Nash Gould, and lighting designer Paul Marantz. Non-profit cultural institutions, Creative Time and the Municipal Art Society, provided production support with assistance from Battery Park City Authority. These limited edition renderings by LaVerdiere and Myoda served as conceptual designs and plans for Tribute in Light, capturing the visual and emotional impact of the installation.
