911 Portfolio

The Artist's Registry at the National September 11 Memorial Museum, is a gathering place and virtual gallery for art created in response to the events of 9/11. The artists range from seasoned professionals to novices inspired to express their reactions to 9/11 through painting, drawing, writing, music, and more.
It was John Center's idea that the Baren group undertake the creation of a portfolio theme "Remembering the Firemen of 9/11". The portfolio traveled across the U.S. in 2002 and thanks to the efforts of Carol Lyons it was included in the 911 Artists Registry above and also in the permanent collection of the New York City Public Library.
