Two Minutes of Silence – An original oil by Peter O’Neill was sold at auction for the sum of $20,000.00 on October 10th, 2001.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of the original was donated to the New York City Fireman and Emergency Service Relief Fund. We have also donated, to date: 14,000 lithographs of the “Two Minutes of Silence” to Fire Departments, Police Departments and Emergency Service Stations. It is our intention to donate, with the support of the public, to every station in the country.
The Original oil now hangs in the Fire Fighters Museum in New York City.
In September of 2002, the image was chosen for the cover of the FDNY and City of New York memorial held at Madison Square Garden.
