It was a beautiful day in Tompkins Square Park and the 7th Annual Howl Festival was in full swing. Live performances by Open Music Ensemble, Vangeline Theater, Arthur’s Landing, Poets Emanuel Xavier, Eileen Myles and Bill Kushner, Tyler Burba’s Visit, Timbila and Chris Rael commanded the main stage with grace and beauty befitting the day of remembrance that September 11th will always be in the hearts of New Yorkers…and everyone. An abundance of children’s activities kept thousands of little ones entertained, while 9/11 tribute installations by artist Ujin Lee, Art Around the Park, a meditation walk and a beautiful Vendor Village and Health and Wellness Outreach section rounded out a full day of something for everyone and something everywhere!
Photographer Stan Schnier (www.stanschnier.com) spent the day in Tompkins Square Park and has agreed to share some of his beautiful photos with us for this blog. These photos are from Vangeline Theater’s performance of Mosaic, a spine-tingling butoh dance performance in tribute to 9/11.
