In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, people around the United States and the world struggled with how to comprehend and respond to the terrorist attacks. Professional artists turned to their practice to honor the victims, comfort those left behind, and mentally process the tragedy. Created in a range of materials and genres, including sculpture, painting, video, drawing, and collage, these works offer a lens through which to interpret the events surrounding the attacks.
There are more than 150 works created by professional artists in the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s Collection. A selection of these works is presented on this website.
