New Hurricane Katrina Exhibit At Museum
A local museum director says visitors should learn about what it was like to overcome hurricane Katrina. A new exhibit at the Ohr-O’keef Museum Of Art in Biloxi gives people the chance to travel back in time to when hurricane Katrina ripped through our coast. The exhibit is a condensed version of last year’s exhibit, “Katrina Plus Ten.” the executive director at the museum tells News 25 the exhibit gives people who come in from all over the country a chance to see what it was like to experience such a historical event.
Kevin O’Brien tells News 25, ”I think now that we have it inside one of the pods it is kind of a reflective kind of space. it’s very quiet and now we have a place that people can sit down and contemplate exactly what happened so it’s almost like a spiritual kind of contemplation when people come here and they experience what happened with Katrina.” The executive director says the old Katrina exhibit was very popular and so far a lot of people have come to check out the new exhibit as well.
