YZKAR 9/11 Individual Memorial Light
Memorial sculpture titled YZKAR 9/11 Individual Memorial Light by Tobi Kahn. The sculpture utilizes a facsimile of a piece of recovered steel which forms its base and center. Cast bronze towers are to the left and a votive holder sits to the right.
In recognition of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, artist Tobi Kahn created a work of art consisting of two memorial lights, cast in bronze, to commemorate the lives lost at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Referenced as YZKAR, the paired works were inspired by his receipt of two remnant pieces of architectural steel recovered at Ground Zero.
