West Seattle scene: Getting ready for ‘The Earth Cried Out’

Three days before the 12th anniversary of 9/11, tonight is your one-night-only chance to visit Alki Arts and see the Southwest Seattle Historical Society-presented exhibit “The Earth Cried Out.” Volunteers and staffers have spent many long hours preparing the luminaria bags saved after the post-9/11 expressions of mourning and hope at Alki Statue of Liberty, including the work shown in our photo, setting them up at the gallery this afternoon – and tonight, starting with short speeches at 6:30 and continuing past 8 pm, they’ll be on display, along with other mementos.

Full details are here; the backstory is here. See you there.

    Cool. Does anyone know if luminaries will be put out this year on 9-11? Another night?

    I remember the original display was featured in the WSHS ’01-’02 yearbook.
