8th Annual Katrina Artistically Revisited special commemorative event
THE 8TH ANNUAL KATRINA ARTISTICALLY REVISITED
New Orleans, Louisiana:

The Annual Katrina Artistically Revisited special multi-media event is held every anniversary eve of Katrina, for FREE to the community, on August 28th, at the luxurious Theatres at Canal Place in downtown New Orleans.

This is the 8th year that this heart-felt, homegrown event has been staged in New Orleans at this location.  It is the only Katrina commemorative special event of this nature, uniquely multi-mixing artistic genres from inception, which in turn quickly sprouted a dedicated following from the very first anniversary eve of Katrina, 2006 at midnight.

Always produced by husband-wife team, Patty Lee and Armand St. Martin, this brainchild experience was designed as a respectful way to revisit Katrina through the eyes and resilience of the creative artist.  

Each year it is dedicated to the memory of Nona Lee who survived Katrina but not the aftermath.  Say the producers, "Our efforts are dedicated to remembering those who perished and honoring those who survived."

Advocate New Orleans' reporter, Margaret Quilter, further captured the essence of this event in her recent 2013 feature story in the Beaucoup Entertainment Arts Section, by writing, "One evening a year, as the clock ticks toward midnight, New Orleans musicians, artists, photographers, authors and film directors come together for an annual grassroots commemorative event, to share with the public their artistic response to Hurricane Katrina."  

The 2013 "Everything Katrina" program includes: Octavia Books Exhibit in the Theatre Lobby, with folks mingling and sharing their Katrina stories ("Everybody has a Katrina story," reminds the producers).  Photos by author Dean Shapiro will also be shared, while guests enjoy purchased wine/food from Gusto Lobby restaurant.  The Theatre Lobby experience also features a book-signing by John E. Wade II (How to Achieve Heaven on Earth) and a possible appearance for a book-signing by attorney turned author John Cobb, Jr. (Flood of Lies) - - all starting at 8:30 pm.  A drawing for gift bags is added this year courtesy of Theodent.  

Sponsors are George Solomon, The Theatres at Canal Place, Theodent, Vivian and Richard Cahn, Arman Sadeghpour, Armand St. Martin, Tom Lowenburg, World 10, Octavia Books, and Patty Lee Records.

In the Theatre at 10 pm, the multi-media event continues with live music performances by Steve Allen (Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans, Katrina) and Armand St. Martin (Orleans Lullaby, Waitin' For My Trailer, Creole Good-By).  These two seasoned pros also perform together on Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World."
  
A presentation by John E. Wade II is scheduled, along with multiple film shorts, trailers, and slide shows by: Dennis Couvillion (Stillness. . . the aftermath of Katrina), Matt Faust (Home), Patrick Madden (Chris Madden's Project Katrina), Steven Scaffidi with Rockey Vaccarella (Forgotten on the Bayou), Joanna Rosenthal/Ariya Martin (New Orleans Kids Camera Project), Richard Cahn (Bayou St. John), and more.  

Robert Green, Sr. will also speak.  Other artists contributing the on-screen photos include Donn Young, Mark Sindler and Patty Lee.  Armand St. Martin is the emcee each year to keep the special event centered. 

A thoughtful cross-section - - of dramatically flooded neighborhoods - - is represented in this special gathering of artists with their professional award-winning Katrina projects, proving quite interesting.  Represented are the Lower Ninth Ward, Lakeview, Uptown, Downtown, St. Bernard, 7th Ward, Algiers, Gentilly, and even Pass Christian, MS.  This also reveals that there are talented artists citywide in New Orleans, in the City That Care Forgot.  And it further is an indication that they are survivors of Katrina themselves, as they continue to tell the Katrina story through their own artistic eyes.  Attendees hail from all over Southern Louisiana, as well as from out of town.  Everybody is welcome.
