On Wednesday, the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, there will be a few commemorative events taking place locally.

Thirteenth Precinct Remembrance Ceremony

In keeping with tradition, police officers at the 13th Precinct will hold a brief ceremony in front of the stationhouse at 8:30 a.m. The precinct lost two officers on 9/11, Moira Smith and Robert Fazio, after they responded to the World Trade Center. There will be a moment of silence for them at 8:45 a.m. The stationhouse is located at 230 East 21st Street between Second and Third Avenues.

Interactive Art Installation at 14th Street Y

The 14th Street Y will be installing “Morning Sky,” a community art project by Illegal Art, on the sidewalk in front of the Y at 344 East 14th Street between First and Second Avenues. The project will begin at 9 a.m. and will continue until 110 6″ square canvases have been painted. Members, friends and passersby will be asked to paint the canvases with the color they believe to have been the sky on the morning of 9/11. Canvasses, paints and clothing cover will be provided.  The canvasses will be exhibited in the Y lobby gallery space for the month of October.

“9/11 Shifting Clouds Exhibition” at Bellevue Hospital

Bellevue Hospital Center will host an exhibition of artwork by people who lived, worked, went to school or participated in the cleanup in Lower Manhattan and now have health problems related to 9/11. The “9/11 Shifting Clouds” art exhibition will run from September 11-13 and September 16-18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Bellevue Hospital, 462 First Avenue at 27th Street.
