The chaos, courage, and emotions of Sept. 11, 2001, will be on display at the Jesuit Dallas Museum through Nov. 24, thanks to an internationally renowned art exhibit labeled Ground Zero 360: Never Forget.

In a panoramic installation of photographic images, visuals and audio clips, Irish photojournalist Nicola McLean and Paul McCormack, former commanding officer of the 41st precinct of the New York Police Department, pay tribute to the first responders and victims of the 9-11 terrorist attacks.

Visitors will hear the city’s previously unreleased radio calls, touch a fragment of twisted steel and broken granite from the World Trade Center, view personal artifacts on loan from families of first responders, and more.

The exhibit previously was on loan to the National Museum of Ireland, the 9/11 Memorial Museum, and the Yitzhak Rabin Center in Tel Aviv, Israel, among others. It captures the confusion, panic, and heroism at Ground Zero, and provides a unique insight into the hearts and minds of New Yorkers in the days that followed the attacks.

The exhibit, which is located on the campus of Jesuit College Preparatory School, is available for docent-guided tours through the museum. For more information, contact museum director Elizabeth Hunt Blanc at 972-387-8700, extension 383, or by email.
