A sculpture by Michael Richards will be dedicated at Franconia Sculpture Park near Taylors Falls Tuesday, as a tribute to the artist who was killed in the 9/11 attacks in New York.
Richards designed the work during a residency at Franconia, where it becomes the first permanent installation. The sculpture, called Are You Down? includes three life-sized figures representing members of the Tuskegee Airmen. The World War Two fighter pilots were a common theme in Richards' work.
The ceremony comes as Americans remember the attacks of eleven years ago.
