Commemorating the fifth year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing

A Massachusetts museum will commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing by displaying hundreds of running shoes left at the finish line. The memorial will be a part of an exhibit at the Attleboro Arts Museum entitled 'A Long-Distance Relationship: The 26.2 Mile Journey'. The exhibit will feature the 200 sneakers left at the marathon finish line by mourners in memory of three lives lost and more than 260 injured in the April 15, 2013 attack. The museum memorial will also include paintings inspired by the race, sculptures such as a giant winged foot, and other works by over 20 artists. Three running chairs used by father and son competitors Dick and Rick Hoyt will also be on display to raise awareness about people living with disabilities. The exhibit memorial runs from April 10 through May 5. April 16 will mark the 122nd year of the race - the oldest continuously run marathon in the US. (04/02/2018) ‚ö°AMP
