Just before the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, a set of drawings, painted by the late Carlos Diniz, will be showcased in New York.

Cuban, whose art collection has been mostly on a digital scale, wasn’t familiar with Diniz’s World Trade Center. Nevertheless, he quickly bought the 1963 work and then contacted the family of the late architect wondering if he can donate it. They certainly agreed and now look forward to the day when people can see in person the drawing which has become a powerful symbol in American history.
