New York-based artist Ultra Violet—who has been muse and friend of Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol—has created her own piece of art to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The 3-foot-tall magenta piece looks just like Robert Indiana's famous LOVE sculpture, and is called IXXI (a palindrome design of the numbers 9 and 11). The 76-year-old told the Daily News, "Nine eleven is a date that is imprinted on our memories. I'm a New Yorker, so 9/11 affected me. It is a marking of time, a date we will always remember."
She calls her roman numberal creation a "marking of time," and it's now under consideration for inclusion in the 9/11 Museum at Ground Zero. Currently, it's on display at the Queensborough Community College of the City University, through October 10th. You can check out more version of her idea right here.
