For the 10-year anniversary of the September 11th attacks on our country, Anderson Creative and guest curator Dr. Fredlee Votaw have assembled a diverse and unique group of artists, all of whom will reflect upon the events of that day and how they carry a life of their own, differently in each of our memories. Drawing on work by adult artists who remember the day, 20-year-old artists who were schoolchildren when the attacks happened, and current 5th grade artists who’ve only heard the events described to them by other people, this installation will showcase the way that images, ideas, people and occurrences get lodged in our reminiscences – and the way that we reconstruct and reshape them based on our own mental and emotional filters. For a thought-provoking and moving reminder of how this day imprinted itself upon our collective and individual consciences, be sure to spend some time ruminating on your own recollections this month at Anderson Creative. The Persistence of Memory opens on First Friday September 2nd, from 6-10, and runs through Saturday, October 1st. Anderson Creative is located at 331 Cleveland Ave NW, Canton, OH, 44702 and is open Wednesdays – Saturdays, from 12-5. More information can be found at www.andersoncreativestudio.com.
