Description

Penn Cultural Heritage Center Lecture
From the Sacred to the Historical: Ten Years after September 11, 2001

Immediately following the attacks of September 11, 2001, curators at the New York State Museum began to document, collect, preserve, and eventually exhibit material that would record the tragic events and bring the history to the public in new ways. Many unprecedented issues were confronted including collecting at crime scenes, working with families, survivors, the FBI, NYPD, FDNY, and many city agencies-and the work continues today. Mark Schaming, Director of Exhibitions, New York State Museum, discusses the issues of collecting and exhibiting sensitive material.

The Penn Cultural Heritage Center is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of community-based Cultural Heritage. The Penn CHC is located in the Penn Museum at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.

Admission: Pay-what-you-want.
