Memories of 9/11

Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, U.S. authorities designated the rubble of the World Trade Center a crime scene. All except law enforcement officials and rescue workers were denied access to the site. New York artist Joel Meyerowitz became the only photographer granted the right of entry to Ground Zero. Influenced by Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange and their work for the Farm Security Administration during the Great Depression, Meyerowitz began documenting within a few days of the attacks. His historical archive of the aftermath, photographed day and night during a nine-month period, grew to include more than 8,000 images of what became known as “The Pile.” It was later published in a book and viewed by millions of people around the world in touring exhibits.

The Miami Art Museum is commemorating the tenth anniversary of 9/11 with “Focus Gallery: Joel Meyerowitz — Aftermath,” an exhibit of color pictures capturing the harrowing consequences of terrorism. “I wanted to communicate what it felt like to be in there as well as what it looked like to show The Pile’s incredible intricacy and visceral power,” Meyerowitz says. “I could provide a window for everyone else who wanted to be there too — to help or to grieve or simply to try to understand what had happened to our city.” An exhibition preview will take place Thursday.

HistoryMiami

Miami Is Vice

Our city does crime like nobody’s business. Pick a part of town, any part, and chances are it’s steeped in some dirty, violent, or otherwise nefarious activities. Take Bicentennial Park, home of Miami’s annual New Year’s celebration. In 1933, it was the site of the attempted assassination of Franklin Delano Roosevelt that killed the Chicago mayor who was standing nearby. And think it’s all suntans and G-strings along Ocean Drive in South Beach? Not the day famed Italian designer Gianni Versace was gunned down on the front steps of his mansion in 1997. Even Dadeland Mall, that bastion of consumerism, got nasty in 1979 when a cocaine-related shooting spree ended with several casualties. Let’s not forget Al Capone, Meyer Lansky, Murph the Surf, and hundreds of other gangsters who made the Magic City their home and battlefield. Miami’s sordid history is long, and thanks to the geeks at HistoryMiami, it’s also well documented. Led by historian Dr. Paul George, the museum’s Mystery, Mayhem and Vice Coach Tour will take place Sunday. George will be your guide as you ride through “time and crime,” visiting sites of well-known and little-known illegal behavior. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll witness some of it. Reservations are required.

$54 general, $44 for members
