List of Artworks Destroyed in the 9/11 World Trade Center Attack


Works destroyed in the September 11 attacks

Many works of art were destroyed in the September 11, 2001 attacks when the World Trade Center buildings collapsed.

Countless other works of art and valuable artifacts, found in safe deposit boxes located throughout the towers, were also destroyed.

Two other sculptures were damaged, but not destroyed by the attacks. These are Red Cube by Isamu Noguchi and Joie de Vivre by Mark di Suvero, located down the street from the World Trade Center. They were repaired and still stand today.

  1. The administrative offices for the African Burial Ground at Duane and Elk Streets in Manhattan were in the World Trade Center; numerous artifacts and artworks were stored or displayed in the offices. Many but not all were recovered during the long period of intense combing through the debris for more than a year after the terrorist attack on 9/11.
