9/11 exhibit to visit Sylva

A 9/11 Memorial Exhibit containing replica banners sent by school children to the volunteers, police, firefighters and EMS at Ground Zero In New York City will be on display starting with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Sept. 2, at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva.

The banners are on permanent display in St. Paul’s Church, which served as the triage and rest area during the early days of rescue and recovery efforts.  Photographer Rick “Sharky” Gorton was the only photographer given permission to record these banners, and he has partnered with the Jackson County Arts Council and Gallery 1 to bring the commemorative exhibit to Sylva.
