Ten years ago this Sunday, Americans woke up to the terror of a World Trade Center in flames and a smoking Pentagon. A decade later, the Wolfsonian examines how disaster and tragedy have been interpreted by art and technology. "Reflections on Loss and Commemoration," an exhibit of material culture that contemplates destruction. In the sculpture Kiss of Victory, a fallen soldier is propped up by an angel. Likewise, a 1910 book compares the aftermath of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to the wreckage of Greek and Roman ruins. "Reflections" will be on display through September 30.
