Artist Hejinian Unveils Painting Dedicated to September 11 at Mass. State House



BOSTON — As part of ceremonies being held across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, state Rep. Peter J. Koutoujian was honored to host a local artist of Armenian descent at the State House to display his artwork reflecting an immigrant’s view of the events that took place that day.

Varoujan unveiled “Missing Stripes,” the centerpiece of his new collection titled “Colors of Liberty” at a reception organized by Peace of Art, a non-profit educational organization, and sponsored by Koutoujian. The work depicts Lady Liberty in front of seven stripes of the American flag with two missing, symbolizing the Twin Towers.
