This project raises funds for the upcoming Tempered By Memory sculpture to be located at a site still to be determined. Tempered By Memory is a forward-looking work of contemporary art that also serves as a monument to 9/11; it is made out of structural steel from the World Trade Center.
The project is run by Saratoga Arts, a non-profit arts service organization dedicated to developing and promoting a thriving year-round cultural environment in Saratoga-area communities.
The artists (left to right in second picture) chosen to execute the project are:
This project carries international importance. To my knowledge there is no other project worldwide reusing World Trade Center steel to create art. I believe Tempered By Memory will be a tremendous asset to our community. I think it is appropriate to Saratoga Springs long history as a healing community, and I thank Saratoga Arts for bringing this unique project to our area. This is not simply a memorial - it is an imaginative artistic endeavor which includes elements of healing, rejuvenation and peace.
