Katrina photo exhibit opens at Presbytere on Feb. 17

The Louisiana State Museum of New Orleans is to open “Before (During) After,” an exhibit of large-format prints chosen to illustrate the impact of Hurricane Katrina on the work of 12 Crescent City photographers, on Thursday, Feb. 17.

An opening reception will be held at 6 p.m. on that date at the exhibit site, the Presbytere, next door to St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter.

The exhibit is to run through August 31.

“Louisiana’s recovery from the 2005 storms has been marked by a spirit of creativity and resilience,” said Tony Lewis, the museum’s Curator of Visual Arts. “The artists represented in ‘Before (During) After’ saw what happened here, captured it vividly, and were forever changed by the experience.”
