As we observe the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, we also highlight the gifting of Toronto-based artist John Coburn's Healing Hearts collection to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.These pen and ink line drawings, created at Ground Zero and throughout Manhattan shortly after the attacks, captures the immediate aftermath of September 11, reflecting the recovery efforts and honouring those who were lost. Copies of a 2002 book of the works were given to the families of the victims, and now 27 pieces from the collection will be placed in the permanent collection of the museum.Please join us for an opportunity to view these works, commemorate the anniversary, and to share in the close bonds of friendship and support that tie Canada and the U.S. together.
