9/11 Memorial & Museum

9/11 Memorial, New York City (2020)

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum in New York City is the country’s principal institution concerned with exploring 9/11, documenting its impact, and examining its continuing significance.

Every one of the 2,983 watercolor squares is its own shade of blue – one for each of the 2001 and 1993 attack victims – and the artwork as a whole revolves around the idea of memory. 

Jordan Friedman, 9/11 Memorial Research and Digital Projects Associate

The meaning of the quotation is less than clear.
