Concrete Sculpture and Concrete Scultures of 9/11 and the World Trade Center

AUGUST, 2014--SAN IS SHOWN HERE STANDING BY HER SCULPTURE ‘VICTORII REBUILD’ IN BETHLEHEM, PENNSYLVANIA. SHE IS HOLDING HANDS WITH MICHAEL PETRONE, THE HEAD ENGINEER AND PROJECT MANAGER, FROM 1967 THAT WAS IN CHARGE OF BUILDING THE ENTIRE ORIGINAL CONCRETE SLURRY WALL THAT SURROUNDS THE WORLD TRADE CENTER IN NEW YORK CITY. MICHAEL WAS VERY TOUCHED TO SEE HIS WALL TURNED INTO A HISTORICAL ARTWORK.

The men who originally gave San this project were introduced to Michael Petrone at a large fundraiser they just happened to all be at in Philadelphia, PA in June of 2014. Once they all talked, they saw the immediate connection and realized that the next step was to introduce Michael to San so that they could talk about HIS experience in the building of the wall. Two weeks later, San and her co-worker in the project, Kay Krapf, got the opportunity to meet Michael Petrone in his office in Philadelphia. The women were delighted by his stories of the process of trying to get the wall built and the people he worked with. They learned that the job was more difficult to do than anyone ever knew. From the way the New York City streets had to be blocked off at midnight to move 7 story rebar cages down main streets when there was no traffic, to the bedrock thickness making it a slow go at first, to the types of equipment they discovered locally to get the job done and the little lady professional artist named Lili Rethi who Michael let come on site and draw the construction that was under way.

Michael Petrone and the hard hat he wore on site while the World Trade Center Slurry Wall was being build. You can see the sticker showing a picture of the twin towers on the back of the hard hat that says ‘Progress with Safety.’ San is also shown above wearing the same hard hat.
