Remembering Katrina Through Art
Ten years ago this week New Orleans was under water. A decade later, people who survived the flood are still turning to art to make sense of Hurricane Katrina’s fury.
Several of the city’s major museums have acknowledged the anniversary with new exhibits, including one at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
As Here & Now’s Peter O’Dowd reports, the exhibit “Ten Years Gone” explores the idea of commemoration, but for the most part refrains from reliving the trauma of Katrina by going beyond images of the storm-damaged city.
