9/11 Memorial

Dale Johnson. First Responders Memorial. Parma Heights. 2017.

On the corner of Cuyahoga Community College — West a monument will be dedicated Monday, September 11th. Dale Johnson is the sculptor. Johnson lives in Sunbury Ohio, and done much abstract work (an exception are his bas reliefs at St. Brigid in Dublin Ohio). This piece has nine cut limestones at eleven feet height to resemble a tower. Inside is a piece of structural steel from the Trade Towers, which came down in an attack on '9/11' 2001. A 'shadow' is part of the installation. It has lights, and some sit in troughs that are now holding water [bad idea].
