Art heals. Two examples of this are part of the ScotStyle web design family. Lisa Holsberg’s Race for The Sky and The Call at The Songs of Karen Benedetto.

Race for the Sky is a music peace project commemorating the spontaneous acts of expression on the New York City streets after September 11, 2001. In the hours after the attacks, New Yorkers instinctively began to gather in the streets and transform them with artistic expressions and improvised rituals. Through music and song, Race for the Sky lifts in memory this remarkable event and offers it on the web as a gift for the future.NewImage.jpg

Lisa will join a panel discussion of the legacy of the spontaneous, ephemeral memorials created all over New York in the weeks after the attack. Panelists include: Martha Cooper, renowned documentary photographer; Dr. Harriet F. Senie, Museum Studies Dir., City College; Kay Turner, Folk Arts Dir., Brooklyn Arts Council; and Steve Zeitlin, City Lore Dir. Followed by a book signing for the launch of Martha Cooper’s Remembering 9/11 (Mark Betty Publishing, 2011). More information: http://www.brooklynartscouncil.org/documents/1715.
