Since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, artists from the United States and abroad have attempted to capture the variety of responses they have both felt and perceived in the aftermath of the attacks. From personal accounts of the towers' collapse to memorial works that pay homage to others' experiences, members of the visual arts world have been pivotal in recording how history has responded to the event that changed our perceptions of America and the world.

So in honor of the 11th anniversary of 9/11, we've put together a slideshow of artworks that were inspired by the events of that day. Including pieces by Eric Fischl, Roy Ray, Zurab Tsereteli and Serhat Tanyolacar, the collection of paintings, photographs, installations and sculptures show just how vast the emotional response to the tragedy has been.
