The Field Museum snags U.S. premiere of 9/11 exhibit
With the approaching ten-year anniversary of that 21st-century day of infamy, the Field Museum this week announced a new exhibit, “Ground Zero 360,” making its U.S. premiere here September 2 (after debuting in Ireland this month). Anchored by photos taken in New York, the exhibit honors those who lost lives and those who saved lives.
The one-room exhibition features never-before-seen photographs taken by photojournalist Nicola McClean (pictured in the slideshow above) and never-before-heard audio from the NYPD emergency line catching police officers’ and firefighters’ reactions to the tragedies around them. Visitors also bear witness to pieces of steel from the World Trade Towers, and they can record their thougts and feelings about the terrorist attacks—or about the exhibit as a whole—at an interactive kiosk.
"Ground Zero 360" runs through January 1, 2012. Exhibit entry is included withprice of admission.
