Sorrow revisited: Re-creating Katrina's muck in New Orleans
Updated : 2019-03-20 12:16:54
A project of the donor-funded nonprofit group Levees.org, the Flooded House Museum is unique among the New Orleans' monuments to Katrina's destruction. There are markers at various sites, including some of the places where floodwalls gave way. But there's nothing like this re-creation by artists Aaron Angelo and Ken Conner. They were tasked with depicting what homeowners would have found once they were allowed back into the area in the months after the storm hit, once the water had receded and roads were cleared of debris. The permanent exhibit was set for a public unveiling on Saturday.
