This special exhibit features photos taken by Western Kentucky University photojournalism students and two faculty members in the days following the September 11, 2001 events in New York City.

What they found was not just a story about smoldering buildings and twisted metal. They found stories about the people who worked in these buildings, the rescuers trying to save them, and the family and friends waiting to hear about the fate of their loved ones. By the following week, the WKU team was back at school with thousands of photographs and one goal: to share their stories with as many people as they could.

Twenty years later their images still resonate with us, even haunt us. We are reminded of the profound emotional toll September 11, 2001, had on our country. The images represent despair, but also hope and resilience.

On Friday (Sept. 10), Ridley and Hull Wealth Management Group of Stifel, and The WKU School of Media will host an open house from noon to 4 p.m. at the Pushin Building at 400 E. Main St., Suite 100 in Bowling Green. Remarks will be at 1 p.m.

The exhibit of 28 images will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays through the month of September.
