Delivered: Hugging Towers
Yesterday afternoon I delivered Hugging Towers to the administrators of the World Trade Center Memorial & Museum. (Interestingly, their offices are in the building owned by the company that is allowing the protesters to camp at Zuccotti Park.) Hugging Towers was received with appropriate reverence and after I signed a couple of legal documents surrendering ownership, we had a nice chat about their plan to seek out its artist.
Then I was taken downstairs for a tour of the Memorial, where the very first name I came across was Father Mychal Judge, the quietly gay priest killed on 9/11. The museum isn't open yet and the security ritual to enter the Memorial rivals anything you've been through at the airport. It would have been comical were the cause not so somber.
