9/11 art in works

By Todd Cohen

Miller Brewing Co. in Eden has donated $20,000 to the 9-11 Sculpture Project, a Greensboro nonprofit that aims to raise $4 million to support creation and exhibition of a work designed to aid in the healing process related to the terrorist attack that destroyed the World Trade Center in New York City.

Greensboro sculptor Jim Gallucci is creating the work from 16 tons of wreckage from the World Trade Center that was donated to him by Metal Management Northeast Inc. in Newark, N.J., one of three companies that salvaged steel from the site’s ruins.

The project has raised $60,000, which has been placed in a fund at the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro.

For information, visit the project’s site at 9-11sculptureproject.org or call Mebane Ham, project coordinator, at 336-273-7448.
