In recognition of the 20th Anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks, the NYC Fire Museum will be hosting a special, limited time, exhibition of the photography of Michael Collarone and Kevin Clarke, Dust to DNA. Photographs taken by Michael, a first responder to the World Trade Center, were digitally modified by Kevin using the DNA of survivors of the attack.

The exhibition will be open from September 6 through October 31.
Admission is included with regular Museum admission.Read more
