Public Art Commission by the Arts Council of New Orleans and the Joan Mitchell Foundation (Public Art Project)
A $25,000 grant was awarded to 20 local artists in New Orleans to help them rebuild/begin their careers after the damage from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Eric Dallimore, a New Orleans native and artist completed this first public art piece made from reclaimed wood from the destruction of Hurricane Katrina. He cleaned and sanded each piece meticulously and coated them with Poly-Soy Satin topcoat finish to keep with the theme of sculpture of promoting an alternative, better way of working, rather than create a toxic work of art.
