This year marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11. We began the Fall 2011 semester with the installation event "Remember 9/11" which took place simultaneously on both the Ventura College campus as well as at Charles Helmers Elementary School (I am an art docent there) located in Valencia CA. Helmers' students began their installation on Friday 9/9/11. Ventura College began its installation on 9/6/11.
It's interesting to note that most of the Helmers students were either born in 2001 or not even born yet - so remembrances such as this are very important.

Students used red frabic to weave "Remember 9/11" in a chain link fence.
