Noted sculptor Jim Gallucci calls his 9-11 sculpture project MY GATES OF HELL. In December 2001, Gallucci rented a flatbed truck and drove to Newark, NJ. There he received 16 tons from the mountains of twisted and scarred metal that once was the World Trade Center, and brought it back to his Greensboro studio. Gallucci will talk about that day and what effect the acquisition of that metal has had on his life and his work. A sculpture, Flutter Gate II, by Gallucci is currently on display at Pettigrew and Blackwell streets as part of the Bull City Sculpture Show.
