Chalk artist, sailor craft visual tributes in honor of those who died - Press and Guide

September 11 was a day not only of reflection, but also of expression.

It’s a day that doesn’t go by without people around the country remembering the terrorist attacks on this country and all of the lives that were lost on that date back in 2001.

Local chalk artist Rebecca Lowe expresses herself through her chalk art drawings all over Downriver.

When an invitation was presented by Lauren Lilly of Bubba’s 33 in Taylor for Lowe to create an illustration honoring the victims and recognizing the impact the day symbolizes in history, she was honored to do it.

“I wanted to do a 9/11 memorial chalk,” Lowe said. “I asked where I should on Facebook and Lauren suggested I come up with the ‘Saluting Sailor’ with his 9/11 memorial walls he created.”
