“One of the most impressive contemporary artworks I’ve seen in the past few years is the 9/11 memorial in New York City. Anyone who questions the value of art in everyday life should visit this memorial. In one creation, thoughts of loss, history, hope, memory, life, fragility, impermanence, strength, and the connection between all people are evoked. The artwork is truly impressive and sublime. Only art– and the arts in general– can capture this range of emotion and reflection. This is why art is so important to all our lives.” (LM Barber)
