My ancestors were welcomed by “The Statue of Liberty” and she was born in its very shadow. Perhaps that is why this figure became a central theme in this artists’ work for more than 30 years. Since Lady Liberty witnessed the devastation of 9/11, Rooney and what the statue stands for have been in harm’s way. The work in this exhibit asks political and philosophical questions to provoke gallery visitors to reevaluate our government’s response to terrorism.
