|Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley, 1 Lawson Road, Kensington, CA 94707|
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley in Berkeley, Calif., is hosting the first-ever U.S. exhibition of photographs depicting workers at Ground Zero during the weeks following the collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
The black-and-white photos were shot by Boston artist X Bonnie Woods, who was permitted access to Ground Zero as a photographer in the immediate aftermath of the disaster. Woods’ lens captures the tenacious spirit and hope of a nation in disbelief and profound mourning. The photos have been shown in Germany, but this is the first time Ms. Woods has permitted a U.S. exhibition.
The exhibition, Workers at Ground Zero – A Glimpse Behind the Scenes, will be on display in the atrium of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley at One Lawson Road in Kensington and open to the public from September 10 to 14, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A conversation with the artist is scheduled for Sunday, September 10, at 1 p.m., and an interfaith candlelight vigil will be held Monday, September 11, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.
