9.11 Exhibit


We’re proud to partner with Honor365 and STRIVE to host the 9.11 exhibition, 20 Years: Remembering the One. Remembering Them All., honoring the fallen, first responders and heroes of that tragic day.

The exhibit features a replica model of the World Trade Center Plaza created by Daan Van Der Steijn from The Netherlands. He recounts the endless sacrifices made on that day, particularly by the first responders.

Slide 2 - Depicting the Invisible


Artist Susan J. Barron's deeply personal and hauntingly beautiful portraits of Veterans coping with PTSD was inspired after hearing 22 Veterans commit suicide daily in our country. Her series of large-scale, mixed media works on canvas and an award-winning documentary film short illustrate the Veterans' stories in their own words. Depicting The Invisible is presented by CAS with support from the Greater Columbus Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council.

Their stories shaped a nation. Our freedom is their legacy. Share in the celebration, and be inspired by the courage of those who served.
