All Aboard --- Public Art Project / October 2008 --- Poydras at Carondelet Street, New Orleans
This 2500 square foot banner mural was commissioned by the Arts Council of New Orleans and
the Joan Mitchell Foundation for "Art in Public Places". It is hosted by LePavillon Hotel.
All Aboard, a digital collage, combines a documentary photograph of New Orleanians boarding a school bus
to escape Katrina's rising waters wtih Michelangelo's fresco of The Flood, painted in 1510 for the Sistine Chapel.
Both narratives describe the fall or failure of a civilization and simultaneously
celebrate individual acts of heroism and humanity.
Installation October 25 - 26, 2008
