  13. Brooklyn Museum honors the memory of those lost and those who have suffered and triumphed in the face of adversity. On view in this gallery are works by the artists Michael Richards and Christoph Draeger. While Richards’ sculpture is a tribute to the Tuskegee airmen during World War II, in retrospect it can be seen as a commemoration of Richards himself and of all those who died in the World Trade Center attack. In his short life, the artist Michael Richards often created work related to the struggles and triumphs of African Americans.

  14. Dispersed Memorial ‘memory cards’ are being exchanged nationally. The cards prompt and assemble a conversation about the memory of lost lives and changed skyline during the events of September 11, 2001, maintaining a web presence on our Google Panoramio group page. With each exchange of the card, a moment of remembrance is initiated and prompts a dispersed, collective conversation about the memory of loved ones lost or affected by the events of 9/11. If you are interested in taking part, request cards by visiting our site. http://www.dispersed-memorial.net
