The Haverhill Firefighting Museum is proud to announce, Artist Maria Fontaine's design for the 9/11 Memorial Sculpture has been selected and will be unveiled at the Community Memorial Service on September 11, 2016.
Maria Fontaine has been a Visual Arts teacher in the Haverhill Public Schools for many years, as well a mixed media artist and jewelry designer. She has exhibited her work in juried shows and galleries, including a solo show at the Pentucket Arts Center, shows at Salem Arts Center in conjunction with exhibitions at the Peabody Essex Museum and the 30 Rooms Exhibit in NYC. Maria and her sister, Elissa Dawson painted two of the shoes in the first Shoe Project including the Queen Slipper City Shoe in front of City Hall.
The Haverhill Firefighting Museum is planning a community program of reflection and honor on Sunday, September 11th, 2016, the 15th Anniversary of that day.
It has been said many times that although those that were lost on 9/11 are never far from our thoughts we wish we could pay tribute to them more than once a year.
To that end, The Haverhill Firefighting Museum, in cooperation with the Haverhill Fire Relief Association, Haverhill Police Department and area First Responders is planning a community program of reflection and honor on Sunday, September 11, 2016, the 15th Anniversary of that day.
The program will include a memorial service, guest speakers and the unveiling of a permanent, perpetually illuminated, public Memorial Sculpture honoring the First Responders that lost their lives that day.
The sculpture will be inscribed with the names of those heroic Fire, Police and Emergency Medical Personnel and will be installed out front of the museum as a visual reminder to "Never Forget".
Inside the museum, the exhibit, "Through the Eyes of a First Responder", chronicling the days events from the perspective of those brave men and women who served and perished, will open.
An Art Exhibit with response pieces to this tragedy, as well as a film by HC Media, capturing personal stories of the day, will be aired.
We feel this is a fitting way for us, as a community, to pay our respects to those that will be forever in our hearts, not just on this anniversary but for generations to come.
