September 11th: Art Loss, Damage and Repercussions

September 11th was a tragedy of epic proportions. Thousands of lives were lost; the world was changed. Art, too, was lost. IFAR's distinguished speakers from the world of art and insurance discussed the works that were destroyed or damaged and the implications for the future. Edited proceedings appear in a double issue of IFAR Journal (Vol. 4, No.4 / Vol. 5, No.1) as well as on the IFAR Website.

IFAR acknowledges The Liman Foundation for its support of this program.
