20 Years Later: Reflections on the Terror Attacks of September 11, 2001

The events of September 11, 2001 left an indelible mark on both U.S. and world history.

To honor those whose lives were lost, to respect those who lost family, friends and colleagues in the attacks on New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania, we invite area artists to contribute to this month-long display at Allentown Public Library.

All artists must REGISTER HERE. (Other details and instruction below.)

Our intent is to acknowledge the day through art, and to teach future generations both what we remember and what we have learned.
