9/11 Photographer Presents at IMAS in McAllen

The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) is thrilled to welcome photographer Mark Roddenberry on Thursday, September 17, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Roddenberry will be present to talk about his current exhibition on display at IMAS, “Avenue of the Strongest: An Eyewitness Account of that Day in September”. The event is open to the public and members of the museum.

Originally displayed on September 11, 2005, Roddenberry’s “Avenue of the Strongest” returns to IMAS on its 10th anniversary. The series of photographs gets its name from a street in lower Manhattan, located approximately one mile north of the World Trade Center. The photographs reflect one of the nation’s greatest catastrophes and our country’s heroic response to the tragedy on September 11, 2001. Roddenberry will tell his account of photographing during and two days after the events of 9/11.
