“September 11 Remembered” At U.Va. Art Museum

September 3, 2002--

WHAT: “September 11 Remembered,” an exhibition of images and poems

WHEN: Tuesday, Sept. 10, through Thursday, Oct. 10

WHERE: University of Virginia Art Museum

Commemorating the first anniversary of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, the University of Virginia Art Museum will offer a special exhibit of images and poems Tuesday, Sept. 10, through Thursday, Oct 10.

The exhibition, “September 11 Remembered,” will include a photograph taken by Roger Sayre of the “Memorial of Light,” depicting the twin blue beams of light rising on the site of the World Trade Center from March 11 through April 11, 2002.

Sayre, a photographer on the faculty at New York’s Pace University, lives across the Hudson River in New Jersey, where he had a good vantage point from which to photograph “Memorial of Light.”

Two other images, by photojournalist Patrick Witty, who freelances for major magazines, and Adam Woodward, exhibited in the major New York City group show “Here is New York: A Democracy of Photographs” (which ran for several months following Sept. 11), also will be exhibited. They are on loan to the museum from the personal collection of Architecture School Dean Karen Van Lengen.

Poems by U.Va. faculty and students written in response to the events of Sept. 11 will accompany the photographs in the display.

The exhibition is part of a nationwide effort by the American Association of Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Services to honor people who suffered as a result of the national tragedy.

The University of Virginia Art Museum is open to the public without charge Tuesday through Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. Limited parking is available for visitors behind the museum.
