The City of Pompano Beach is honored to announce the dedication of its newest piece of public art, a memorial for the tragic events that took place on Sept. 11, 2001. The city’s Fire Rescue Department acquired a piece of steel from the World Trade Center for use in a memorial for the 343 first responders who died saving lives. The Public Art Committee was asked by the department to utilize the steel as a public art project. Project development originally began in 2016. In March 2018, the City’s Public Art Committee issued a Call to Artists. Out of the applications submitted, the glass and corten steel memorial, entitled Unbroken Spine, A Book of American Heroism, by Cherie Saleeby, was selected. The artwork is located at Founders Park next to Pompano Beach’s fire museum. The exposed steel in the artwork symbolizes the backbone of the first responders and their resolute courage. The steel also represents the spine of a bound book helping to keep the pages together. Etched onto the glass pages are the names of the first responders who lost their lives.
