Katrina Exhibit Opens Near World Trade Center Site

An art exhibit about one disaster has opened at the scene of another.


"Floodwall" is artist Jana Napoli's responseto Hurricane Katrina, which she lived through in New Orleans. It consists of hundreds of empty drawers, salvaged from trash heaps in flooded neighbourhoods.

Napoli says she had to empty the drawers of ruined, wet clothes before she collected them.

The exhibit is now on display at the Liberty Street Bridge, a pedestrian bridge that connected the World Trade Center to the World Financial Center across the West Side Highway.
