Ten years after the disasters on September 11th, 2001 New York City commemorated the horrific date. Artist Scot Borofsky designed a U-HAUL truck gallery to present his "September 11th Series" to the people of New York. The truck gallery began the day across the street from the Guggenheim Museum and moved to the Museum of Modern Art at P.S. #1 in Queens. Many tourists and art-world people became aware of Borofsky's immediate response in paint to the terrorist attacks for the first time, ten years after the creation of the work.
