Stacked, 2014 (700 stainless-steel bicycles) by Ai Weiwei (Chinese, b. 1957) is part of the exhibition, Ai Weiwei:According to What?, at the Brooklyn Museum. This monumental, labyrinth-like installation is part of a series of bicycle works by Ai recalling his childhood and the bicycle’s relevance to the lives of many Chinese people. The work also alludes to one of his major artistic influences, Marcel Duchamp, who is famous for using readymade objects, including bicycle parts, to make art.

John Jay College of Criminal Justice was honored to receive the N-4 steel beam that until September 11, 2001 supported one of the towers of the World Trade Center. The twisted beam, 3.5’H X 8.3’L X 5’W with a thickness of .25”, was preserved and stored in Hanger 17 at John F. Kennedy International Airport after that painful morning.   It is the centerpiece of John Jay’s 9/11 Memorial Sculpture.  The names of 67 of the fallen from John Jay are etched on the granite lunation, or outer pathway, which was designed by Skidmore Owing and Merrill Architects.  The inscription reads “Dedicated in Memory of those from the John Jay College Community Who Lost Their Lives on September 11, 2001.”
