Exhibition Preview of “Joel Meyerowitz – Aftermath”

In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Miami Art Museum presents “Focus Gallery: Joel Meyerowitz – Aftermath,” an exhibition of photographs taken by the only photographer granted right of entry into Ground Zero after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. For nine months during the day and night, Meyerowitz photographed “the pile,” as the World Trade Center came to be known, and the over 800 people a day that were working in it. The exhibition consists of 24 photographs, recently donated to the Museum and presented in the Focus Gallery section of the Museum’s Permanent Collection installation. The exhibition will be on view August 19, 2011 – November 6, 2011.

MAM hosts a special exhibition preview on Thursday, August 18, 4-7pm, for police, firefighters and emergency workers. The preview is free and open to the public.
