Katrina Memorial

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking the memoir class to the Museum of International Art. I’m quite familiar with the collection, but the show “The Arts of Survival” was new and powerful. Vodou flags respond to the earthquake in Haiti, puppets to a volcano in Java.
Closest to home, some outsider art on Katrina. Outsider artist Joe Minter of Birmingham, Alabama built a three acre “African Village in America” installation. The memorial piece “Rebuild and Restore New Orleans” is housed within it.
