Remember the Sky

Thank you to all who joined the 9/11 Memorial & Museum on September 11, 2022 to take part in active remembrance and recognize how we are all connected to one another underneath the same big sky.

Sample post from 2021 Remember the Sky campaign

This annual social media campaign is inspired by the clear blue sky that was present in New York City and across the country on 9/11, as well as by Spencer Finch’s monumental art installation in the 9/11 Memorial Museum. His artwork, “Trying to Remember the Color of the Sky on That September Morning,” is comprised of 2,983 watercolors — each a unique shade of blue — a tribute to the enormity of collective loss and the individuality of each of those who were taken from us far too soon.

For younger Americans, 9/11 is no longer an experience lived but history learned. Remember the Sky seeks to engage audiences in meaningful conversation, serving as a bridge between memory of that day and what can be experienced in-person by visiting the Museum. Your participation helps us expose a new generation to the lessons learned during and following 9/11 as together, we fulfill our collective promise never to forget.
