The 9/11 Portfolio: Prints from the Manhattan Graphic Center
Miller Gallery, Otterbein Art Dept., 33 Collegeview. Open immediately before and after the observance. Gallery hours: 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. These prints were all created within a year of the tragedy.
The Manhattan Graphic Center has generously loaned these prints to Otterbein University and Art Department on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. Otterbein is privileged to share this exhibition with all those who join in our community’s desire to remember what happened ten years ago and to honor the memory of those who perished.
