Wolf's work will also be featured in the upcoming Stilleven: Contemporary Still Life exhibition opening Sept. 12 and continuing through Dec. 20 at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Event Image Katriniana: Literary and Artistic Responses to Hurricane Katrina
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Doreen Simonsen, Humanities & Fine Arts Librarian, will discuss her collection of Hurricane Katrina related works. Abstract: Katriniana is a phrase coined by Susan Larson, former Book Editor for the Times-Picayune Newspaper of New Orleans, to describe the inundation of books written about Hurricane Katrina and its impact. In the ten years since Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and precipitated the failure of the federal levees in New Orleans leaving 80% of the city underwater, writers, artists, photographers, musicians, filmmakers and many more have been using their skills to respond to the devastation. Benefit works, sympathetic responses, communal rebuilding efforts, celebrations of the rich cultures of New Orleans, and a little bit of carpetbagging characterize the various types of literary and artistic responses to the storm and its aftermath. In conjunction with this talk, a collection of these works will be on display on the second floor of the the Mark O. Hatfield Library until September 23, 2015. An online guide to the books on display is available at this site: http://libguides.willamette.edu/katriniana
