The Sculptor: Eric Fischl

In 2001, artist Eric Fischl created a sculpture in response to the 9/11 attacks called, “Tumbling Woman.” The piece initially caused controversy when it was unveiled. Fischl talks about the New York art scene in the 1970s, the process of creating “Tumbling Woman,” and how it felt to see it on display for the first time at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum years after he first created the piece.
