About the Project

Time to Consider: The Arts Respond to 9.11 was a collaborative poster project that reflected on the September 11th events. Four New York cultural organizations—Creative Time with Poets & Writers, the Van Alen Institute, and Worldstudio Foundation—invited submissions from artists, poets, designers, and architects. A representative poster from each organization was jury-selected for printing and displaying throughout New York City.


The four posters appeared on media walls in a street campaign from February 11-18, 2002 and were also offered free to the public at museums, libraries, and community centers. The Deutsche Bank Lobby Gallery additionally hosted an exhibition featuring over forty of the poster proposals.
