Event Details

In partnership with The 9/11 Arts Project, initiated by the Smith Center for Healing and the Arts       Blend: "Recording / Responding to Loss and Recovery" was designed to complement the exhibition ‘"Ten Years After 9/11" co-curated by Helen Frederick and William Dunlap.


The exhibition features work by 39 international artists from Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Russia, Ireland, Germany, Greece and the United States; each artist bringing their personal perspectives and unique viewpoints to the cultural conversation commemorating the tenth anniversary of the events of  September 11, 2001.


Blend will include live performances by local electric cellist, Wytold, and a collaborative spoken word piece by Regie Cabico and Gowri K., followed by a panel discussion exploring methods and perspectives of healing on the anniversary of 9/11. Panelists include exhibiting artists Brian Counihan, Mike Fay, Jeffrey Kent, Phyllis Plattner, and Matt Pinney; moderated by Helen Frederick. 


The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities launched Blend: a vibrant series of events to engage the District’s diverse communities in dialogues and programs that use the arts to intersect and explore today’s social issues. Through a variety of venues, voices and values, the Commission will convene local creatives in inspirational and provocative opportunities throughout the city.
