If the current exhibit at Ground Zero wasn’t enough to help you relive that frightful day in September, we have the art exhibit just for you: “Elegy in the Dust: Sept. 11th and the Chelsea Jeans Memorial.” It’s a fabulous recreation of a retail store on Broadway that was covered in toxic-asbestos ridden dust. The show features the possible remains of loved ones and various other lung piercing sediment that has been carefully preserved and re-sprinkled on “Levi’s jeans and begrimed, flag-bearing Ralph Lauren sweaters.” Even scarier then another terrorist attack though, is the notion that these lightly dusted clothes will end up being all the rage next season.
