Hurricane Katrina changed the face of New Orleans forever, and artists with the VESTIGES project showcase a collection of items and art depicting what is missed in today's NOLA at Coastal Carolina University.

As reported by Myrtle Beach Alternatives, the exhibit will run from September 1 through October 7, 2011 in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery on the CCU campus.  What a poignant topic and timing given that just a week ago, we in Myrtle Beach, were faced with the possibility of a major hurricane hitting our own coast. 

To kick off the exhibit, there will be a lecture titled "The Ethics of Disaster" given by Jan Gilbert of the VESTIGES project at 4:00 p.m. in the Edwards Courtyard adjacent to the gallery and a reception following, from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. in the gallery.
