In the fall of 2001 the Whitney Museum presented an exhibition of Jacob Lawrence’s work, including his sixty-panel Migration Series. A class of thirteen-year-old New York City students at The Calhoun School saw the exhibit. Influenced by Lawrence’s portrayal of complex events in American history, the students collaboratively tackled the telling of their own recent history—the aftermath of 9/11 as they were experiencing it. This exhibition at DC Moore Gallery is the first public presentation of the series of thirty-one collages that they created. Ten years later, this visual narrative remains a moving and insightful testament to the personal and global impact of the World Trade Center attacks.
