Thank you Elizabeth for your continued diligent effort in bringing inspiring works of art into the most devastated parts of New Orleans. Thank you Sean for your beautiful spread of inflatable cars. An Interlude to Stillness for one week was a consistent sign of whimsy juxtaposed with breathing life in a mechanized world. I couldn't think of a better staging ground than New Orleans for such an event.

Art in Action delivered once again. My sculpture students from Tulane were very inspired by their visit to Sean Derry's project. We followed up our visit with a lively discussion which contributed greatly to the final project in class. Kudos.
