Holocaust Museum Houston opening reception: Ground Zero 360: Never Forget
An exhibition honoring the victims of 9-11, Ground Zero 360 was created and organized by Paul McCormack, a retired Lieutenant from the New York City Police Department, who participated in the rescue and recovery effort, and his wife, Nicola McClean, a New York-based photographer from Ireland, who took pictures of the chaos that day.
With a selection of more than 80 photographs taken by McClean, the exhibit consists of harrowing images, heartbreaking missing posters and a unique panoramic installation, inviting visitors to visualize the events in the days following the attacks. Visitors will also be able to hear the city's previously unreleased emergency radio calls from that morning and touch a fragment of twisted steel I-beam and broken granite from the World Trade Center. Personal artifacts on loan from families will also be on view.
