“AND THEN THERE WAS QUIET—NEW YORK AFTER 9/11” 
PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBIT BY DAVID GORDON
        
          In 2017, Sarasota Sister Cities and many of its twin cities are sponsoring a poignant photographic exhibit about lower Manhattan after the Twin Towers fell.  


          To generate interest for the 2017 exhibit, David wanted to have a showing outside of Sarasota but close that would be available to local media—and he succeeded. 


          The show will be mounted at the Manatee County Public Library at 1301 Barcarrota Ave., right by the water.

Wednesday, September 7
             Opening Reception at 5:30pm

Saturday, September 10 – Community 9/11 Memorial Event from 2-4:30pm
