Vincent A. Dalpiaz '02, of Binghamton, New York, was personally affected by the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001 -- his sister was to have been a passenger on the flight that crashed in Pennsylvania. As a way to try to help others, he has reproduced some of his artwork that depicts a Manhattan scene, and its sales are being donated to the American Red Cross.

Dalpiaz, an economics and fine arts major, has reproduced a computer-enhanced digital photograph he took -- when he was a freshman -- from the top of the Brooklyn Bridge, looking towards Manhattan. The poster-sized reproductions are being sold for $5 each at The Upstairs Gallery, a shop on Canton's Main Street, and have already been re-ordered once.

To date, the effort has raised over $350, which Dalpiaz has added to personally. In addition, gifts of the photo have been made to the families of victims.
