Art for Heart: Remembering 9/11
NEW YORK, NY - All of us were affected by the events of September 11th, but it was the youngest generation who was affected most of all. The innocence so profoundly disrupted that day is nowhere better demonstrated than in the drawings created shortly after the attacks by thousands of children. In their straightforward depictions, these works, both heartbreaking and heartwarming are testaments to the human instinct to bear witness, provide comfort, and attempt to make sense out of the unthinkable.
Commemorating the 10th anniversary of September 11th, Assouline is honored to present a collection of these drawings in Art for Heart: Remembering 9/11. This exquisite tome includes selections of artwork and messages from the New York University Child Study Center, the Art for Heart Program of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation and Dear Hero and Notes of Hope collections, which have been acquired by the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
The book’s proceeds are graciously provided to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a not-for-profit corporation created to oversee design, raise funds, and operate the Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center site. The Memorial, designed by Michael Arad and Peter Walker, will remember and honor the thousands of people who died in the attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993.
