In 2001 during the 9/11 attack I was teaching as Visiting Artist in Residence at Murray State University Murray Kentucky. After the tragic event, I as well as my students were finding it very difficult to be creative due to the severe shock we all experienced. The solution was to face it head on, so I taught a class entitled “Artist Response to Tradgedy” in which my students learned how to design, market, fund and present a high profile project. We designed and built an architectural scale model of a 9/11 memorial as well as a Bronze bust of Father Michael Judge that I created.The project was presnted to Engine 1 Ladder 24 Fire Station, New York City.
