Artists recording the changes of the Gulf Coast

Published on Author sadhuguet

I grew up in South Louisiana and spent many summers along the Gulf Coast in a little fishing village called Grand Isle.  Grand Isle was hit the hardest by the BP Oil Spill in the Summer of 2010.  The following year the largest die off of new born dolphins in recorded history, sharks came closer to Florida coasts than they have every have and the people along the coast, especially in Louisiana, experienced respiratory and physical health problems.  After Isaac this fall, the coast from Grand Isle to Belle Pass, roughly an 80 mile of coast line was closed because of a large tar mat along the coast line.  Oil that was supposedly cleaned up was brought up from the bottom of the Gulf and pushed to shore.  I walked the beaches of Grand Isle in July 2012 to see asphalt like oil areas under the blowing sand.  And I want to make sure that the Louisiana Coast line is saved and made healthy again.  I am trying to put together a group of artists and an exhibition but need help financing it.  Please go to my Kickstarter project and make a donation to help me do so.  If you cannot give, please go anyway and check it out and if you think it is a good project share the information with others.  Thank you for all of your support.
