The Easter Bunny stopped by the City Park Campus today to wish everyone a Happy Easter right before the holiday break. Kids at the Joey Georgusis Center for Children also had a chance to spend some time with the bunny. Interim Chancellor Lea’s granddaughter, who attends the center, said, “I think I know that bunny from somewhere!”
Gothic fixtures of the ancient swamps,
Dressed in armor of thick gray moss,
As sentinels they stately stand,
Guarding fragile wetlands,
Holding their tactical line
Against the looming Gulf tide.
And even deeper south
At Mississippi’s mouth,
In river bank silt they anchor their knees,
While the tops of the trees
Affix their sights at the sky,
Engaging for defense, meeting hurricane’s eye.
Have you noticed that some utility boxes around town are colorfully designed? Well, there is an organization called Community Visions Unlimited (CVU) that has a utility box art program where local artists use utility boxes as a canvas to paint artwork on them. CVU believes that its work helps to revitalize and beautify the New Orleans community. Artists who participate in the New Orleans Street Gallery project receive a small payment for their time and talent.
