Dallas Holocaust Museum presents Ground Zero 360: Never Forget opening reception
The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance opens its new exhibit, Ground Zero 360: Never Forget, honoring the victims of the 9/11 attacks and the heroic first responders who put their own lives at risk to save others.
Ground Zero 360: Never Forget displays the work of Nicola McLean, a New York-based Irish photographer who captured powerful images in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. Her husband, Paul McCormack, was the presiding New York Police Department Commanding Officer of the 41st Precinct at the time. Together they created the exhibit in remembrance of the victims of the attacks and in honor of the heroic actions of the first responders who worked tirelessly in the hours, days and weeks that followed.
On the exhibit’s opening day on July 2, the Museum will honor first responders from the North Texas community by hosting a First Responders Open House from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., providing free admittance with funding from Communities of Foundation of Texas donors. Breakfast and lunch will also be provided. The launch day activities continue that evening with a reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by a lecture from McCormack.
Following the opening, the exhibit will be on display through August 25.
