CANTON - The 10th anniversary of events in New York City and Washington on September 11, 2001 will be marked with three exhibitions at the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery at St. Lawrence University. All three will be on campus from Aug. 17 through Oct. 22, and all are open to the public, free of charge.
• A discussion with Wafaa Bilal, one of the artists whose work appears in "Re-framing Terrorism," on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. in Room 123 of the Griffiths Arts Center. Iraqi-born Bilal's work is informed by his home in the "comfort zone" of the U.S. and his consciousness of the "conflict zone" in Iraq. Many of Bilal's projects transform the typically passive experience of viewing art into a participatory event.
• "Aftermath: Photographs of Ground Zero" by Joel Meyerowitz is an exhibition of 22 photographs drawn from an extraordinary archive of pictures that is the only existing photographic record of Ground Zero after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
• Selections from "The Day Our World Changed: Children's Art of 9/11," will be exhibited on the lower level of Owen D. Young Library. The New York University Child Study Center collected 800 artworks by children in the New York metropolitan area, 83 of which were exhibited in 2002 at the Museum of the City of New York.
