ANONYMOUS REQUIEM I
A year and a month after the 9/11 attacks, the event at the Stevenson University Art Gallery included performers Tom Goldstein and Denise Gantt, and students and faculty of Stevenson University. Each of 14 participants chose a loved one who had passed to honor through music, poetry, or prose. The hour-long event featured their 14 presentations in the gallery, with Peter’s paintings on the wall, each with an unlit candle beneath it. As each presenter completed an homage, Peter lit a candle under one of the paintings to illuminated the presence of the lost loved one. One minute of silence followed, and then the next participant went. When all 14 had gone, all 14 paintings glowed in the dim gallery surrounding the audience.
