In 2001, artist Eric Fischl created a sculpture in response to the 9/11 attacks called, “Tumbling Woman.” The piece initially caused controversy when it was unveiled.

In the latest episode of the 9/11 Memorial Museum's OUR CITY. OUR STORY. podcast, Fischl talks about the New York art scene in the 1970s, the process of creating “Tumbling Woman,” and how it felt to see it on display for the first time at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum years after he first created the piece.

You can listen to “The Sculptor: Eric Fischl” on iTunes and Spotify. Music for this episode was provided by Apache Dropout and C. Scott. New episodes of the OUR CITY. OUR STORY. podcast will be available every Tuesday.
