Scrap House: Katrina Memorial.

Scrap House: Katrina Memorial

A beautiful reminder of the destruction of Katrina. It now has Mardi Gras beads dangling off it though, which detracts from the piece.

Hurricane Katrina Memorial.

Hurricane Katrina Sculpture

Across from the Convention Center is a large sculpture of a house in a tree. It is a Hurricane Katrina memorial.

[Sarah, 12/30/2009]

Yes, a memorial -- could tell right away it wasn't just a random, enraged bayou monster with its head stuck in a shack. The sculpture was created by artist Sally Heller from Katrina trash, and is named "Scrap House."
