'It doesn't get easier': Grief at Ground Zero still palpable 20 years after 9/11

  'It doesn't get easier': Grief at Ground Zero still palpable 20 years after 9/11 The grief at ground zero was still palpable on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in New York City.Once again the living victims of the 9/11 attacks — the walking wounded who lost friends and relatives or survived and now wonder why — came back to the place we once called ground zero. They grieved on a morning eerily similar to that Tuesday in 2001 — a cloudless blue sky filled lower Manhattan with bright light and the cool of the fall to come.

The exhibit in New Jersey will run until March 20, 2022. It will travel to the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles in the fall next year.

“As we reopen the doors to our museum and so many of us return to the workplace, it only seemed fitting that we would look to ‘The Boss’ to lead the way.” said Mark Conklin, director of artist relations and programming at the Grammy Museum Experience Prudential Center, in a statement. “No musical artist has captured the spirit and resiliency of New Jerseyans in song better than Bruce Springsteen, so we couldn’t imagine a more appropriate exhibit at this moment.”

Springsteen’s modified Fender guitar that was featured on several of his album covers such as “Human Torch” and “Born to Run” will be displayed. Other items will include stage clothing from Springsteen and members of E Street along with a signed itinerary from his Human Rights Tour, a six-week benefit tour in 1988. A ticket booth stage prop from the Tunnel of Love tour will also be highlighted at the exhibit.

'New' Van Gogh drawing to go on display in Amsterdam museum

  'New' Van Gogh drawing to go on display in Amsterdam museum AMSTERDAM (AP) — A drawing newly attributed to Vincent van Gogh that has never been displayed publicly before is going on show at the Amsterdam museum that bears the Dutch master's name. The “new” Van Gogh, "Study for ‘Worn Out,’” from November 1882, is part of a Dutch private collection and was known to only a handful of people, including a few from the Van Gogh Museum. The owner, who is remaining anonymous, asked the museum to determine if the unsigned drawing is by Van Gogh. From the style, to the materials used — a thick carpenter's pencil and coarse watercolor paper — it conforms to Van Gogh's Hague drawings, Senior Researcher Teio Meedendorp said Thursday.

A saxophone played by the late Clarence Clemons – who performed alongside Springsteen for 40 years – will be on display. The saxophone was passed on to Clemons’ nephew, Jake Clemons, who continues to use the instrument as the newest member of the E Street Band since 2012.

Through an interactive kiosk, visitors will be able to view Springsteen’s handwritten set lists and create their own encores to compare against the legendary performer’s original.

“Few performers embody the soul and excitement of live rock and roll like Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band,” said co-curator Robert Santelli, founding executive director of the Grammy Museum. “This exhibit will undoubtedly get fans excited about seeing Springsteen again in concert, hopefully soon.”

The Grammy Museum partnered with the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University.
