Also on September 11th:

The Westerville Police/Fire Chaplains, police, fire, first responders, 911 dispatchers and Ohio Patriot Guard will be observing the 10th anniversary of 9.11.01: A Decade of Remembering, a Future of Hope on September 11, 2011 at 2 p.m. at First Responders' Park, 374 W. Main, just east of the Fire Station 111.

The WTC Steel has been installed at the park, and even if you can't make this remembrance, First Responders' Park is always open for reflection.

Additionally, Otterbein University is featuring a special exhibit at the Communications Center, just steps from First Responders' Park at the Miller Gallery, 33 Campus View:


The show runs through October 7. Gallery hours are: M-F 8-4; Sat. and Sun. 1-4; closed holidays.

The Manhattan Graphic Center is located near the SoHo district of New York City. In 2001, one could step out the front door of the MGC building, turn to the south, and enjoy an unobstructed view of the World Trade Center. The events of 9/11 profoundly affected all New Yorkers, including the artists represented in this exhibition. These prints were all created within a year of the tragedy.

The Manhattan Graphic Center has generously loaned these prints to Otterbein University on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. Artists have the extraordinary opportunity to express their emotions and thoughts in a tangible, visible form. The strength of the Manhattan Graphic Center 9/11 portfolio lies in the many beautiful and inventive ways in which a wide variety of feelings and ideas are conveyed.

Otterbein University and Art Department is privileged to share this exhibition with all those who join in our community’s desire to remember what happened ten years ago, to honor those who lost their lives trying to save others and all those who perished that day.
