Today Keith De Cesare, artist and founder of ArtAID was interviewed by Marc Santia, from NBC New York.

“Every year for more than a decade, artist Keith De Cesare has posted artworks he created in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in and around the new World Trade Center.

And every year, New Yorkers and those attending the annual September 11 anniversary events have gotten to appreciate De Cesare’s tributes to the attack’s victims, survivors and first responders.

Until this year.

That’s because someone ripped down all 31 images de Cesare and his family posted in the Chambers Street – World Trade Center subway station on the 16th anniversary of the attacks last week, leaving only a shred of one of the prints hanging on the tiled wall of a platform.”
