'Messages of Hope' artists honored


A group of the area artists responsible for the creation of "Messages of Hope, Peace and Love," a tribute to the victims of 9-11 and their families, visited New York City this summer where they delivered the book's original artwork to members of the Fire Department of New York and received a Commissioners' Commendation Award given them by the NY Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta. Works by the young artists can be seen through September at Pumps and Grinds in Duvall, and through Sept. 12 at Bellevue Art Museum and at Kirkland Art Center.
