Witness and response
Posted by Teresa at 02:46 PM *

The exhibit is called Witness and Response: September 11 Acquisitions at the Library of Congress:

Over the past year and in almost every section of the Library of Congress, staff have sought and received an abundance of original material including prints, photographs, drawings, poems, eyewitness accounts and personal reactions, headlines, books, magazines, songs, maps, videotapes, and films.
I expect that everyone will be struck by something different. For myself, I’ll mention the drawings by third graders in the American Folklife Center, the comic book art and political cartoons section, and the poster gallery.

I’ll be flying tomorrow. Shouldn’t be a problem. See you all later.

My favorite response in comics isn't online: Linda Medley's "Where Do You Get Your Ideas?" from the Comics Journal Winter 2002 Special. (Although having said that I must apologize: the way it hit me all out of the blue like it did on that last page had something to do with the fact that I didn't realize when I started reading it that that's--well, not what it's "about"; not in a Topic Sentence kind of way. But 9/11 is what it's on about; witnessing and responding is pretty much precisely what it's about.
