MemorialAmericans memorialize victims of tragedies in a variety of ways. Since the 9/11 attacks, the nature and role of public memorials has come into sharp focus.

Lester Levine, author of the forthcoming book 9/11 Memorial Visions: Innovative Concepts from the 2003 World Trade Center Site Memorial Competition, Paul Murdoch, architect of the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA, and Julie Beckman, co-designer of the Pentagon Memorial, discuss the interplay of the built environment and memory. 

This program is presented along with the Museum's exhibition Commemorating 9/11, Photographs of Camilo José Vergara, which will be on view.
