Fragile Land: Rotunda

by Michel Varisco

Popp's Fountain, New Orleans City Park

The closing event will be a de-installation party. Come early to see the whole piece for the last time!

Artist's Statement:

é─˙Site specific response is very important to my work. Poppé─˘s fountain, a 1934 Worké─˘s Progress Administration Structure was built during the great depression and has survived disasters both man-made and natural. In this respect it echoes themes of my work; the dance of fragility, decay, dignity and resiliencyé─¨ said Michel Varisco, a native New Orleans photographer and sculptor.
