New Haven and Yale University join to commemorate 9/11

NEW HAVEN — Yale University and the city of New Haven have jointly planned events to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and the university also organized two exhibitions related to the tragic events of that day.
Among the activities planned by Yale, local organizations and the city for Sept. 11 are a city-wide tolling of bells, including the Yale Carillon, at exactly 1 p.m.; a community service fair on the New Haven Green from 3 to 4 p.m. “to honor the spirit of those who volunteered their services following the attack”; and an “Interfaith Service of Remembrance and Reconciliation” at 4 p.m. on the city Green, according to a statement.
A candlelight vigil will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Yale’s cross campus. The vigil will include an outdoor display of an installation titled “9.11.11 Reminiscences and Reflections” made up of personal recollections submitted by individuals from the campus and city community, the statement said.
“The 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, is more than an occasion to honor and mourn those who lost their lives that day,” University Chaplain Sharon Kugler said, also in the statement, “it is an opportunity to pledge ourselves to building a better future.”
The observance also features two Yale campus exhibitions of works created in reaction to 9/11:
• “Remembering 9/11,” featuring work by Yvonne Jacquette, Nathan Lyons, and Judith Shea, and Leo Rubinfien’s acclaimed photographs in the installation “Wounded Cities,” will be on view at the Yale Art Gallery, 1111 Chapel St., through Nov. 27, the statement said.
•“The Book as Memorial: Book Artists Respond to and Remember 9/11” will be on view at the Haas Family Arts Library, 180 York St., Sept. 6–Dec. 5.
