Travel Haiku - A Katrina Of Art In New Orleans



New Orleans
a Katrina of art
to raise fallen city

New Orleans
now a katrina of art
to save 'hurricaned' city

As a part of its ongoing revitalization efforts, on November 1 New Orleans debuted Prospect.1, the largest biennial exhibition of international contemporary art ever organized. Considered by many as the most important art event of 2008, Prospect.1 showcases the work of a star-filled roster of 80 artists. With support from the local community, areas destroyed by Katrina—including abandoned homes and vacant lots—were used as art spaces, and hundreds of residents volunteered to assist artists and work the event. Admission to all events is free, and it continues until January 18.
