911 15 Years of Healing

Hi Dear Folk,

15 Years of Healing

NYC Health + Hospitals World Trade Environmental Health Center (WTCEHC) wanted to acknowledge the 15th Anniversary of 9/11 by showcasing patient drawings from their Art Therapy Program. The program has been a source of support and renewal for the quality of life of its physically or mentally-affected patients, many of whom worked or lived downtown on or after 9/11. Works that previously conveyed anxiety and depression are now uplifting, color-rich, visual celebrations of recovery and resilience. 
My company designed a calendar, note cards and posters, using these patient drawings as key elements.  The posters replicated from the calendar pages will be on display at three 9/11 events for public viewing. 

The previous offices 90 West, where we were located in Lower Manhattan, were totally destroyed.  I believe only one person lost their life in that building.  It was an old Gothic copper roofed building that had just finished a multi million dollar renovation. For several months many worked from home and out of our warehouse in Brooklyn, until we found new premises in Mid Town Manhatten, not too far from the Empire State Building.
