The Ninth Annual Renee May Lecture - The Lessons of Survivorship Beyond 2001: Forging a Collective Vision

The 9th Annual Renée May Lecture honors the Walters Art Museum docent killed during the attacks on the United States in 2001.

What: The Ninth Annual Renée May Lecture
The Lessons of Survivorship Beyond 2001: Forging a Collective Vision

The first plane hit World Trade Center on September 11 as New York City schools art therapist Marygrace Berberian was exiting the building. Traumatized, yet clearheaded, Berberian worked with children to create The World Trade Center Children's Mural Project, a dynamic international installation. She continues to work with Manhattan-based kids on the effects of 9/11 on their lives today. 

The 9th Annual Renée May Lecture honors the Walters Art Museum docent killed during the attacks on the United States in 2001.
