We were deeply saddened and moved by the tragedy of 13 November that claimed the lives of so many innocent in Paris.  The sadness, grief and anger will never completely depart, nor will the memories of our lost loved ones, but we can create experiences and projects to help console our heavy hearts, to transform the darkness into light, and elevate our wounded spirits.  In the tradition of ‪#‎ArtAID‬, visual artist Keith De Cesare conceived a remarkable and unique design that unites our two countries together in solidarity, in transforming the Statue of Liberty (originaly a gift from France) into a Guardian Angel of hope, beauty and strength, a powerful symbol of our mutual resilience and solidarity.  On November 18 the staff at the French Consulate very graciously received a visit from ArtAID in order to present a signed version of the Paris – New York Angel of Liberty to Bertrand Lortholary, French Consul General in New York. #artaid ‪#‎unitedwithfrance‬ ‪#‎prayersforparis‬ ‪#‎artforacause‬ ArtAID ‪#‎peace‬
