Don currently has a show, "9/11 Afterwards," consisting of paintings of the neighborhood around Ground Zero made en plein air during the several weeks after September 11. The works show people quietly and respectfully gazing at the site.
He lives in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan, about 10 blocks north of the World Center. For several weeks after the tragedy, he would put on his mask, pack up his inks and oil pastels, and carry his easel and sketchbooks to vantage points around the Ground Zero site where he would paint the individuals and the crowds. Some of these paintings have been shown singly but they have not been shown as a group until now – the twentieth anniversary of 9/11.
The works are viewable in three locations:
