posted by admin — Jan 16, 2002
Heritage Preservation received a Chairman’s Emergency Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for “A Survey and Report on the Extent of Damage and Loss to Cultural Resources after the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks.” The project will collect information about the impact of the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on 99 museums, libraries, and archives; 67 historic landmarks; and 245 works of outdoor sculpture in lower Manhattan, along with significant art collections and business archives maintained by many nonprofit organizations. A report will document the extent of damage and loss to cultural resources and the responses of museums, libraries, and archives to this unprecedented tragedy.
