DARK ELEGY MISSION STATEMENT
- Dark Elegy is a memorial created by artist Suse Lowenstein to commemorate victims of terrorism all over the world. This collage of larger than life sculptures depicts the reaction of 75 mothers, sisters, daughters, wives and relatives as they responded with deep pain upon learning of the death of their loved one after the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The creation of Dark Elegy has, unfortunately, spanned a growing number of terrorist attacks here in the US and around the world.
- This memorial will serve to remind the world community of the devastation that terrorism leaves in its wake. It will serve as a lasting testament to the victims of terrorism worldwide in the unending struggle to eradicate this menace from the globe; and, Dark Elegy will stand as a beacon for all peace loving people throughout the world to unite.
GOAL FOR DARK ELEGY
To find a permanent and prominent home for Dark Elegy that is easily accessible to people of all nations.
One of the things that makes this memorial so unique is the fact that it was created by an individual affected deeply by the tragedy of terrorism rather than by an outsider portraying the tragedy of others.
DARK ELEGY WILL BE DONATED
- There is no request for public funds associated with this endeavor.
- Once a permanent location is found, the artist and her family will donate the memorial.
- The artist and her family will personally finance the casting of each figure in bronze assuring the longevity of the sculptures that make up the memorial. It is their strong belief that this is an appropriate use of the money paid to them from the Libyan government following the Pan Am 103 disaster in 1988.
