New Orleans in New York/New York in New Orleans

From today's New York Times:

"With a star-filled roster of 81 artists and a projected 50,000 visitors from out of town, it may indeed bring benefits to New Orleans. But it is already clear that the arrangement has not been one-sided, and the New Orleans contribution has been rich. With its history of destruction and rebirth, artistic triumph and economic struggle, this crumpled crescent of a city provides a singular interpretive context that acts as a resonance chamber."

Kay Rosen, one of the P1 artists, may be of special interest to you. She is described by the NYT as a "writer's sculptor."

I've found one of her billboard pieces so far.
