The Art of Remembrance: Commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks with Carol Nix and Tara Mullins
October 27 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm
On September 11, 2001, the United States experienced a series of terrorist attacks – the largest in the nation’s history. These events changed the country dramatically and set the stage for a world few could ever have imagined. Carol Nix, director of the NC State Crafts Center, envisioned a memorial service to honor the 20th anniversary that recently occurred at NC State on September 11, 2021. This ceremony presented art influenced by this event, including photography by Charles Moretz and a dance piece titled The Weight of Hope choreographed by the director of the Dance Program, Tara Mullins. Join Nix and Mullins as they discuss the anniversary, the ceremony, and the ways in which art can help us process and heal.
