Lithograph print titled Promenade Night, created by Brenda Berkman (b. 1951). The print depicts the lower Manhattan skyline at night, with the partially constructed One World Trade Center building lit in the center. The silhouette of two figures standing on the promenade are positioned in the foreground, and a third lone figure (the artist) appears in the far left. 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.
