Event description: This multimedia exhibit highlights the little-known mariners' role in responding to 9/11 - from evacuation to rubble removal. To bring home the point, the exhibit will be mounted on a ship docked at a pier from which Ground Zero rubble was removed. PortSide will mount the exhibit on the former U.S. Lighthouse Tender Lilac, in partnership with the non-profit Lilac Preservation Project. The exhibit will include photography and oral history by the award-winning photojournalist Carolina Salguero, who went on to found PortSide NewYork, plus contributions from vessel and rubble removal crews, MARAD, and the Center for National Policy.
