This special program focuses on several compelling Staten Island-focused stories and responses to the attacks on the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001. Moderated by Jenny Pachucki, the panel will highlight the resiliency of community-driven responses of Staten Islanders in the aftermath of tragedy.
Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G)
Panel participants include Jennifer Sammartino, Deputy Chief of Staff, Office of the Borough President and Dennis McKeon, Executive Director, Where to Turn.
This program is in partnership with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. On September 11, Snug Harbor will exhibit Wolfgang Staehle’s work, “2001” – the digital image project that captured, tragically, the approach of hijacked plane Flight 11 and its impact. Days prior, Staehle had set up unmanned webcams in Brooklyn for a project conveying the predictable normalcy of life. Instead, those cameras chronicled the transformation of a routine workday into a city under siege.
In collaboration with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, Snug Harbor will be screening this work in real-time throughout the day, free to the public. Presentation of this program is made possible through the generous support of 9/11 Memorial Museum Presenting Sustainer Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund.
