City Plate - New Orleans
Part of our second series of City Plates. The theme of this second collection is "Culture and Capital(ism)," and the cities chosen are New Orleans and Washington, D.C., both rich in history and culture, and the booming megalopolises of Las Vegas and Dubai. With this theme we ask: how does a capital investment in manufacturing culture impact city form? America’s capital of culture, New Orleans was devastated by floods during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The massive scale of the flooding is frightfully apparent: the white areas on this particular plate represent the parts of the city that were flooded. The Mississippi River curves across the plate in a swath of blue; Audubon Park,on the river’s bank, and City Park, adjacent to Lake Pontchartrain, are rendered in green. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this plate will go toward helping to ensure the enduring legacy of City Park. Currently our donations contribute to their capital campaign to help grow the park for years to come.
