Here, Take the Keys

When two planes slammed into the World Trade Center almost 10 years ago, sending the buildings tumbling to the ground, it didn't seem possible that there would ever be anything to replace the New York City landmark. But life goes on, and as the country began to heal artist Manuel Acevedo is one of many people who started looking at what would eventually replace the Twin Towers, manipulating Polaroids of the site with the drawings of proposed structures. The result was the series WTC Tropism 2007, and it's worth a gander to look at the different ways the empty space could be refilled. These are some of the featured works in Acevedo's Keys of Light. The show premiered in New York in August and features Acevedo's works, which incorporate various forms of multimedia, from the past 10 years. Catch it from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays at the Latino Cultural Center, 2600 Live Oak St. Call 214-671-0045 or visit
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Dec. 9. Continues through Feb. 26, 2010
