Sculptors Matt Rink (l) of Redding and David Boyajian of New Fairfield pose before their new 9/11 sculpture unveiled today at Westport’s Sherwood Island State Park during tonight’s 10th anniversary 9/11 commemorative ceremony. The new installation is a large floral festoon fabricated from aluminum, including shards of the metal recovered from the Twin Towers. Ten large flower petals, each marking a year since the tragedy, provide a canopy that protects the names of the victims that are etched on the wall below. Except for the required cutting and bending of the pieces into floral shapes, the sheet aluminum retains the rough patina and marks found on them.
