Michael Richards, Artist & 9/11 Victim



‎9/11 victim, artist Michael Richards was in his studio on floor 92 of the North Trade Center when the first plane struck the building. His obituary says he was the only artist killed in the attacks. Richards loved aviation, as is evident in many of his sculptures. Eerily, this last sculpture of his, a cast of his own body being intersected by airplanes, and now in the permanent collection at the North Carolina Museum of Art, both foreshadowed and foretold his death. He was 37 years old.
