The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council lost its offices, studios and an artist o­n September 11, 2001. How is the LMDC commemorating the fourth anniversary of 9/11?

With an exhibition titled "A Knock at the Door." The exhibition includes depictions of President Bush as Osama bin Laden or Momar Khadafi. Mug shots of Condoleeza Rice, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and the president. Fake postage stamps showing President Bush with a gun to his head.  An American flag reconstructed into a straitjacket. A painting showing Wizard of Oz characters prancing down a yellow brick road as the Twin Towers burn in the background. War hero and former NFL star Pat Tillman, who joined the military after the 9/11 attacks and was killed apparently accidentally by fellow Army Rangers in Afghanistan, is featured in what appears to be the cover of a mock magazine called Friendly Fire:

"My death was tragic. My glory was short-lived. Flawed perceptions of myself, my country and the War o­n Terror resulted in the disastrous end to my life."

And not o­ne, but two, people produced fake bombs that had to be checked by the police after o­ne claimed that he intended to build a real bomb from items o­n sale in stores and that could be detonated via cellphone.

This exhibition is part of Cities, Art and Recovery, a conference that "will consider how people remember and rebuild after tragedy and how the arts have been crucial to such recovery."

Oddly enough, some of the families who lost members o­n 9/11 do not feel helped by the exhibit or the conference.
