Description: The museum commemorates the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 by presenting 3000 Tears, Dalton Ghetti's tribute to 9/11, as well as three other works: Twin Towers, 2007, Sewing Needle and Spool, 2003, and Church, 1990. The artist created a memorial to honor the fallen by carving one teardrop every day for each of the victims. Averaging 300 teardrops per year, it took him 10 years to carve the 3,000 teardrops necessary to complete the project.
