Prospect 1

Yesterday, I drove down to the Ninth Ward to see some of the art installations that have been put up for Prospect 1.
While there, I took a few (bad) pictures. I hadn't been there since I'd seen Waiting for Godot, out in the desolation a few years ago or so.
The exhibit really stretches throughout the city, so I haven't seen but a tiny portion of it. Unfortunately, it's ending soon. It's really quite something, with artists from around the world providing art.










One of at least two huge boat like structures. This one indoors, with a sort of tidal pool inside of it which made an eerie noise.





Inside the still gutted Battle Ground Baptist Church, a large sculpture made of found items.

Wonderful! Thanks for posting the pics. I'll pass them on to my art-historian husband. He's all about public art that's interacting with the environment.

I like that last one a lot.

Oh wow, looks very cool, and Godot there must have been amazing. I like that play, and so appropriate.

I'd heard about this and am really sorry to miss it.

Miss J LOVES this kind of art- out where everyone can share and be part of it.

"Waiting for Godot" in post-Katrina New Orleans seems like a perfect play for the city.
