An Incredible Gesture: Manju Shandler

Overwhelmed with emotion like so many New Yorkers and Americans in the wake of the attacks on 9/11, Manju Shandler sought to ground herself through the process of making art. Manju reflects on how art helped her process the magnitude of loss, creating an individual painting for each of the  2,977 people killed that day. The piece – called “Gesture” – was once on display at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.
