New Orleans Katrina Holocaust :: Paintings by Beverly Kimble Davis
The many stories of what happened after Hurricane Katrina have yet to be told. Instead of a swift rescue, people of New Orleans were abandoned in the sweltering heat for days without electricity, without food, without water and without hope. Left to fend for themselves, they were preyed on and killed by criminals, by white vigilante gangs and by the officers of the New Orleans Police Department. In a series of thirteen large scale works, Beverly Kimble Davis uses paint and canvas to speak for Hurricane Katrina’s voiceless, missing, the displaced and the dead.
