The exhibit offers an overview of his seven year aftermath 3000 piece collection, which documents both his unique aftermath journey and how the world, U.S. and NYC reacted to the attacks here.

Silver Tribute Pin

Silver brooch Twin Towers tribute pin. Handcrafted by artist in Maine.

INFINITE HOPE Sterling Artisan Signed R. Lugosch Limited Series Pin Twin Towers

Ronna Lugosch Artisan Silver Pin Date Signed 9-11-2001

Description I was given about pin:
This is a lovely limited edition pin crafted by Maine artist/jewelry designer Ronna Lugosch. This sterling silver pin was designed by Lugosch and a clergy person just after the bombing of the Twin Towers in 2001 and part of the profits of the sale of this pin when it was originally released were donated to the relief efforts made on behalf of that event. Lugosch is very well known for her unique and inspirational jewelry which is crafted by the piece to this day. This pin is beautiful in its simplicity and is signed on the back 'Lugosch Simonds' which is the name of the artist and the last name of the clergy with whom Lugosch worked during the creation of this piece. At the top of the pin the piece is stamped 'Infinite Hope' and dated 9-11-2001. It is also stamped 'STER'. The Twin Towers are done in a cutaway design inside the oval in the middle of the pin. A truly collectible piece.
