Reflecting on artists' roles in commemorating 9/11.


Whether through documentary photographs or fine art, artists have been telling the story of how September 11 affected their communities. Through their practice, they were able to capture not only a historical recording of the immediate aftermath of the attacks, but the intense spectrum of emotions and incredible community resiliency in the face of immense adversity. Come listen to these artists as they share their stories of how their experiences of September 11 shaped their artistry, community, and the world at large. This program is hosted collaboratively by the Museum of Chinese in America, El Museo del Barrio, and the National Museum of American History. SHOW LESS
