Each stainless steel statue is 14-feet-tall, weighs 800 lbs, and is meant to withstand 200 years of wear and tear. Designed by public artist Doug Kornfeld…in collaboration with FEMA, the Arts Council of New Orleans, and the New Orleans Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.
A fun reminder that good ideas can come from anywhere. Especially Guerrilla Wayfinding. Keep your eyes open.
