Bill Bowers

After visiting the 9-11 Memorial Wall surrounding St. Paul’s Chapel of Trinity Church across the street from the twin towers, I walked in the church graveyard littered with paper, pieces of the collapsed towers of the World Trade Center and layers of ash lay heavily on the stones. With my photos and a gift of an American flag and sought after memorabilia, the 9-11 wearable art jacket found its home as a wall hanging, making it more presentable to the viewer.

An overall view of 9-11 shows how senseless and destructive the politics of our world have become by the superpowers of different nations.
