THE PRAYER ROOM PROJECT 2011:
Artist Wants to Recreate Muslim Prayer Spaces Destroyed Inside World Trade Center
“It’s extraordinary!” N.Y. Times Journalist: On Religion article: “Muslims & Islam were Part of Twin Towers life”, Samuel G. Freedman, after review of “The Prayer Room” art exhibition proposal. His September 11, 2010 article in the N.Y. Times dealt with just such a room set aside, and place found for prayer.
The exhibition presents full scale replicas of a room set aside in the World Trade Center for Muslims to pray in and a staircase landing on 163rd floor next to Windows on the world Restaurant. These large scale replicas, are juxtaposed against the original blueprints and full scale drawings of the structural elements of the towers themselves. This art exhibition is proposed to open in 2011, the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
