The events surrounding 9-11 turned the tide of our nation's history and forever marked the beginning of a new era.

The museum is eager to assemble an exhibition that features artworks inspired by the events of 9-11 as artistic visual expressions that reflect the emotions and historical impact felt by artists at the time of the tragedies, since the events, or for the future.
