19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The Chairs - Oklahoma City National Memorial

The chairs at the Oklahoma City National Memorial. One chair for each person that lost their life in the bombing. The Outdoor Symbolic Memorial stands on the now-sacred ground where the events of April 19, 1995, unfolded. What was once the footprint of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, Fifth Street, the Athenian Building and Oklahoma Water Resources Board are now the Field of Empty Chairs, Reflecting Pool and Rescuers’ Orchard.
