Newseum Visit

wtc-antennae-17

Last week Neil and I took a few days to visit Washington DC. We had a chance to go to the Newseum and visit my drawing from September 11th displayed there – I had not seen the exhibit until now. I felt very proud that my work was there, I almost cried when I saw it in the showcase. What an honor. After we saw my piece, in the “Who Controls the News?” citizen journalism display, we went downstairs to see the 9/11 exhibit. Seeing the film and artifacts brought that whole terrible experience back…it was pretty intense. I drew the wrecked antennae from the World Trade Center that was displayed at the museum. Wow.

    hi Despina,
    Thanks! and I hope you guys do get a chance to visit the Newseum. They have the front pages from newspapers dating back to medieval Europe up to the election of President Obama – it’s pretty great to see them all in person.
