Artspace exhibit Faces of Katrina drawing field trips, weekend visitors

"Jerry Davenport did a Second Line through the whole Artspace building today with a group of 27 Seniors from Saline High School. They got dressed and everything. Had a Blast!! The guests loved it also," said SRAC education director Julia Foley. Davenport, who was raised in New Orleans' ninth ward, is one of a group of artists who are guiding the school and weekend tours for students during the Faces of Katrina exhibit.
