New York. The “Tribute In Light” will illuminate the sky over Lower Manhattan on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
The Tribute in Light is an art installation created in remembrance of the September 11 attacks.
It consists of 88 vertical searchlights arranged in two columns of light to represent the Twin Towers.
It stands six blocks south of the World Trade Center on top of the Battery Parking Garage in New York City.
Tribute in Light began as a temporary commemoration of the attacks in early 2002, but it became an annual event, currently produced on September 11 by the Municipal Art Society of New York.
The Tribute in Light was conceived by artists John Bennett, Gustavo Bonevardi, Richard Nash Gould, Julian LaVerdiere, and Paul Myoda, and lighting consultant Paul Marantz.
