9/11 Collage

Cey Adams collage

The performance - A City Reimagined - brilliantly directed and executed, is the greatest gift we could possibly give to the New Yorkers who found the strength to tell us their stories in the immediate aftermath of 9/11.  It is also a gift to the city as a whole, reminding us of the poetry that lives in the hearts and minds of all New Yorkers. —Mary Marshall Clark, director, Columbia Center for Oral History

We Will Rise
Cey Adams and the people of New York, 2011
5’ x 18’
Handmade paper, acrylic, enamel, ink, and photographs 

This commemorative installation for the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001 when thousands of lives were lost and the landscape of New York City was changed forever speaks to the unwavering spirit of the City. Adams wanted to create a collage for all New Yorkers to experience a small healing reminder of our strength and resilience. Adams chose variations on the colors red, white and blue to speak to our unity as a nation. We Will Rise was commissioned by The Jerome L Greene Performance Space and the Department of Community Engagement and Audience Development at New York Public Radio as a way to fold audiences into this powerful moment. We asked New Yorkers to send us images and words of hope. We Will Rise is the outcome.
