Artist Linda Koast has been granted permission by the Bergen Record to paint the newspaper’s famous image of firefighters raising the flag at Ground Zero. The title of Koast’s painting is “The Phoenix,” named from the great bird that rose from the ashes. A limited-edition print of the painting is available in an edition of 500, and proceeds will be donated to the Bravest Fund, a charity that was set up by the three firemen in the scene. Koast plans on donating the original painting to the White House or Smithsonian as a memorial to the American people. For more information, visit www.koast.com.
