Lithograph print titled Survivors, created by Brenda Berkman (b. 1951). The print depicts a snow-covered 9/11 Memorial Plaza with the Survivor Tree in the center and a retired police officer, Joe, in the left foreground dressed in an NYPD uniform. The officer is a 9/11 survivor and is looking up at the tree. A small rabbit, representing the artist and fellow 9/11 survivor, is posed by the tree on the right. The One World Trade Center building is in the background. 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.
