Remembering 911 with a new portfolio of prints seems timely. We should
never forget this attack on our nation. With the perspective of some years
and many changes in our vast nation this portfolio would definitely be
different, but a reminder non the less.

I would participate.

I wonder why.
Thanks for clarifying that. I'm just mystified.

Hi folks.

Living in New York, I remember 9/11 all too well. It was a very surrealistic, scary, sad day, to put it mildly. I could say much more but perhaps that would be better posted on after five.

At any rate, Barbara, I would be interested in participating in another exchange on this theme, as long as the deadline isn't too soon.

best wishes

I'd like to get in on this, too, if the deadline is not within the
next 3 months or so.

I too would like to join in the 9/11 commemorative project. Will there be any

It often takes me a long, long time to digest enough for such a topic to come
into my art. I have done one work (in another field -- glass on metal ie.
enamel) of the two towers in flames. Strangely enough, it sold during this past
June's Open Studios here in Oakland, CA. There was a father with a gaggle of
teenagers, going around to each participating artist. (I open my warehouse to
friends for the area wide event... so there were 8 other artists joining me.)
Since I'm the one in charge, I tend to keep an eye on things. He would say
something, then they would all look and chime in. I have no idea what was said
about my work, only that he purchased several and that the twin towers work went
with him. Oh but to be a fly on the wall. It was the last work that I would
expect to be purchased. I did it for myself and no other.

The event continues to stir our hearts... and when a man with a large
number of offspring comes and purchases such a powerfully topic'ed art piece...
well, perhaps one contributes a small part to the history of the event.

Perhaps the BAREN's participation on this would be of interest to those not
only riveted by the difficulties of our time now and of future people, but
worthy of preservation/presentation to collections in museums, etc.? A special
page on the site would be of great interest from several angles.

Would there be a size limit, a way to make them into a "collection", etc. for
future presentation? Boxed? In a "portfolio" or some such? To my mind, the
broader the scope, the better...

Thanks for reading this.

Hello Friends!
I think that if there was an "unofficial" Baren 911 type exchange that it would be great to make it into an actual sellable book with the procedes donated to victims or some such cause. I know that there are a lot of orginizations out there that have done this.
We could have the books printed using that site that I hear so many great things about and it would automatically be offered and marketed to the public by lulu as well as the many voices of our Baren Members. I would buy 10 or 20 myself to offer in my retail store. If there was one Baren member willing to take in and track the funds to be donated it would make it easier.
The size of the book would be determined by the amount of artist that participated. Each printmaker could write a brief recap of where and what they were doing when they heard the horrible news.
Something to think about.
I would be willing to donate a lot of my time to this if anyone is interested.
Cheers, Rob
