Lost but Not Forgotten. On September 10th, RICJ commemorated the 10th anniversary of 9/11 at the Wall of Hope. Family members of Rhode Islanders who perished carried torches to begin that evening’s WaterFire, and RICJ announced the commission of a new artwork installation to be created by local artist, Nicole Cooney, that will bear the names and faces of the 12 Rhode Islanders whose lives were lost in the attack on 9/11. Throughout the following month the art project was successfully funded through Kickstarter—we will report more details in the next newsletter. The following are photos from the event, courtesy of Laura Atkinson.
