Suwanee's Remembrance exhibit offers an example of art as history. Unveiled September 11, 2013, the display at Town Center Park features a damaged, twisted relic from one of the World Trade Center towers, which was given to Suwanee by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Created by Statesboro artist Marc Moulton, the display also includes a 9-11 historical timeline with stainless steel letters and numbers embedded into a cement pad as well as an inverted conical sculpture, with the lower Manhattan cityscape cut into it. At night, a light-shadow impression, which offers an aerial view of the cityscape, is projected onto the pad.The display is located in a quiet area of Town Center Park along Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road.

  • Shimmering Echoes by Koryn Rolstad

Shimmering Echoes, the suspended sculpture installed in the lobby of City Hall in 2010, was created by Seattle-based artist Koryn Rolstad. Mounted in two areas, the cascading sculpture includes 12 groupings suspended from railroad-inspired aluminum track frames and 1,900 elliptical-shaped eco-resin elements in shades from translucent white and rose tones to yellow, green, and aqua. Rolstad describes Shimmering Echoes as "a watercolor in the sky."
