Images of the Ninth Ward - Photo Exhibit

It's interesting that this photo exhibit is opening as President Bush heads down to New Orleans for his 11th trip down there since Katrina. With that, check out this interesting exhibit that features "quiet images of the homes, churches, and other buildings that were destroyed by Katrina accompanied by haunting views of ordinary objects left behind by the ward's former residents." Like the piano ravaged by water, left. The exhibit is at the Panopticon Gallery located in the Hotel Commonwealth in Kenmore Square. The Gallery is open: Tue - Fri: 10 am - 6 pm, Sat: 11 am - 5 pm, Sun & Mon: closed. The exhibit is up until September 29th, with an opening reception on September 18th from 5-7pm.
