NORWICH – The Chenango County Council of the Arts has been chosen as one of 30 sites across the state to host an exhibition in recognition of the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The exhibition was loaded into the facility on Wednesday and will be open to the public Monday.
Thanks to the efforts of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Museum, the public will have a chance to view historical artifacts from the 9/11 attacks as well as pictures and memorabilia from the victim’s families at sites across the state.
“The load-in process went very well,” said CCCA Executive Director Victoria Kappel. “And we feel privileged to have been chosen for such an important event.”
The Council of the Arts, located on West Main St. in downtown Norwich, will house the exhibition in its Mareia Brown and Raymond Loft Gallery.
The entire procedure was an ambitious one on the part of the state as they attempted to deliver each exhibition in one day. At 10 a.m., the truck pulled into the parking lot of the Council of the Arts and was unloaded and gone within 30 minutes.
