Video duration: 2:45
Mitchell Gaudet, glass artist and friend of Tom Mann, was born & raised in New Orleans. After Katrina, he spent months repairing his studio and helping family & friends. When he returned to work, he created pieces about the line that stained his city, where the water settled for weeks. He also created "Ninth Ward Wreckage", a sculpture representing houses piled up in his neighborhood by the surge.
