The Katrina Collection
The Katrina Collection is a series of mixed media assemblages which incorporate storm debris. The series was begun within a few weeks of August 29, 2005, when the worst natural disaster in United States history zeroed in on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The series now comprises nearly 1000 works of art, and pieces may be found in the collections of former President and First Lady Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter, ESPN announcer Jon Miller, singer Faith Hill, and Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts. Public collectors of the work include the Safeco Corporate Collection, Katrina Museum, Katrina Research Center of University of Southern Mississippi, Art Across Arkansas, Mississippi Humanities Council, and University of Virginia.
