A Gallery sold Mark Cuban the World Trade Center Drawings which he Donated to the Smithsonian

Carlos Diniz, one of the world's most famous architectural illustrators, drew the original World Trade Center drawings, ten years before the Twin Towers were built, and his drawings helped persuade the NY Port Authority to allow the construction of the buildings.

Carlos Diniz's family approached A Gallery to place these drawings in a museum so we secured the help of Mark Cuban, who purchased the 58 drawings and donated them to the Smithsonian Museum, as part of the US National Collection, in time for the 20th anniverssary of 9/11.
