Lovegrove project remembrs 911 victims

Lehigh Acres Citizen
Leoma Lovegrove has planned a community-wide art project to take place in the days leading up to Sept. 11. She is escorting a canvas measuring 18 feet by 10 feet around the area on which members of the public will be invited to paint the names of those who perished on Sept. 11, 2001.

The first venue will be The Franklin Shops on July 1 during Art Walk. Names of those who lost their lives at the World Trade Center will be painted in red. At subsequent locations, different colors will be used for the names from the Pentagon and the four airplanes. In all, the more than 3,000 names will form the base of a painting of an American bald eagle. Lovegrove will be there to assist with the painting of the names.

The canvas will be completed by Lovegrove during Remember 9-11 Tenth Year at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre on Sept. 11, 2011, beginning at 11:30 a.m. Lovegrove and many others have partnered with her on this project to make sure that those who lost their lives are never forgotten and to honor those who conducted rescue efforts. Members of the NYPD 1013 Local will take part at the event as will members of American Airlines Suncoast KIWI9/11 Memorial.
