CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- A panel discussion, 'Art After 9/11,' will take place at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 11. The event, organized by Ben Powell, a graduate student in the Department of Communication, will examine artists' messages since Sept. 11, 2001.

'We'll be asking what are the implications of creating art that deals with the attacks? With remembrance of the victims? With skepticism, protest and hopes of preventing another attack,' explained Powell.

Panelists are Jay Edelnant professor of theatre; Brianne Waychoff, graduate student in Women's Studies; and Powell.

The event is free and open to the public.
