During an exhibition in DUMBO, Brooklyn, Oil Drum Art was
invited to appear on the CBS Early Show during Earth Day Week because
of its environmental content. A dozen artworks were displayed
on the CBS Plaza and the artists were interviewed. Then in September
the Commemorative 9/11 Oil Drum Art Exhibition at the Barnum Museum
was featured on the New York Fox-5 TV News.
