The US Embassy London is holding an exhibition, "And Yet We Rise: 20 Years Remembrance & Reflection of September 11th", which explores the effect, aftermath, and healing following the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks in New York City, Washington D.C., Shanksville, PA, and the world.
It will be a one-of-a-kind event, unmatched around the globe in its scale and size, and it will be on display in the American embassy in London for a four-month period
A spokesperson said that the exhibition is designed to honor all those affected by the September 11th events as well as recognizing the 200-year enduring friendship between the US and UK
It will consist of artworks by US and British artists and other media from the events themselves and created afterward, which will be staged in such a way as to encourage thoughts of healing, remembrance, and rebirth. Some of the items are loaned from partners such as Flight 93 National Historic Site, The National September 11 Memorial and Museum, The UK Government Art Collection, The US Embassy London collection, FAPE (Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies), and a field of celebrated contemporary artists.
