MEMORIAL PAINTINGS

Linda Leshay and Rafael Guadalupe entered the 9/11 World Trade Center Memorial Competition.  The main elements of their design were pavilions with stained glass curtain walls. The walls were designed with monumental faces that symbolized the tremendous personal loss to the victims' families, friends, and the nation.  Linda Leshay created these mixed media paintings to allude to the sense of loss, memory, regret, faith, and severed connections.
