Prelude 9:11:11 by Todd Stone
Internationally renowned painter Todd Stone will present “Downtown Rising - Studies in Resilience,” his series of works documenting the 9/11 tragedy in New York City and the ensuing rebirth of the World Trade Center, during his residency at SteelStacks Aug. 30-Oct. 12. The paintings will be on display in the Alvin H. Butz Gallery, located on the second floor of the ArtsQuest Center, 101 Founders Way, Bethlehem.
Stone’s residency is the first in ArtsQuest’s new “Artists Among Us” residency series designed to showcase the acclaimed artists living and working in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding region. In addition to the exhibition of his work, the residency will include a free gallery talk by Stone, as well as two screenings of “Witness Downtown Rising Renga,” the documentary film that chronicles the experience of when a group of celebrated poets were invited to Stone's studio on the 48th floor of the new 7 World Trade Center on the 10th Anniversary of the 9/11 attack to respond to the tragedy in verse.
This annual exhibition is our way of thanking our valued members. Each year ArtsQuest celebrates our members' passion for art by inviting them to participate in a juried gallery exhibition.
