Planting Memorial Tree
Lithograph print titled Planting Memorial Tree, created by Brenda Berkman (b. 1951). The print depicts the One World Trade Center building, nearly complete, with a swamp white oak tree being lifted by crane about to be planted on the 9/11 Memorial Plaza. The print is signed.
This print is part of a series titled 36 Views of One World Trade Center, created by 9/11 first responder and FDNY member Brenda Berkman as she documented the construction of the new One World Trade Center building from 36 vantage points around the city. For Berkman, printmaking became a path through the trauma she had experienced on 9/11 and in the subsequent months that she spent at Ground Zero.
