VISIONS OF HISTORY & TRUTH: ARTISTS IN ACTION AFTER 9/11
We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth. - John F. Kennedy
In response to the events of September 11th, many artists chose to act in the way they knew best - through their craft. Challenged by tragedy, they drew a line of their own and offered photographs, paintings, poetry, theater and film that participate in the memory of that day. Our panelists represent those whose work will soothe and provoke, comfort and confront and forever be a part of the story--the history--of September 11th, 2001. Brian Lehrer (WNYC) moderates a panel with Lloyd Levin (Producer, United 93), David Alan Basche (actor, United 93) and Ann Hoog (Curator, September 11th Documentary Project, Library of Congress).
