Armand St. Martin is a popular New Orleans musician and composer. Each year in August on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Armand’s wife, Patty Lee, produces an event with her husband. The event is called Katrina Artistically Revisited. The duo produce this event out of their own pockets, and with the help of sponsors, to give local artists an opportunity to showcase their works. However, another important aspect of the event is that it remembers those who perished in the storm and honors those who survived. This year marks the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and Katrina Artistically Revisited is bigger than ever. The 2015 event will feature films, live music, photographic exhibits, podcasts, published books, guest speakers, and first responder stories. The activities will be spread out over a 12-hour period from noon to midnight on Friday August 28, 2015 at The Theatres At Canal Place. All events are free except for three films that are only $5 each. For information, visit KatrinaArtisticallyRevisited.com or info@KatrinaRevisited.com.
