11 Mar Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on the New Yorker
Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on the New Yorker is an exhibition of cover illustrations by 25 artists spanning more than four decades of the evolving New York City skyline. 33 covers from the weekly news and culture magazine. From the time the original World Trade Center first rose into the skyline, it began appearing on covers of the New Yorker. For years, artists treated the Twin Towers playfully. After 9/11, somber imagery emerged. While the destruction of the towers was not depicted, the anxiety and sadness engulfing the nation took form on New Yorker covers after the attacks. Over the years, the covers commemorated the loss of the towers while documenting the revitalization of the site.
