Join Inhabitat for the Mired in the Bayou opening reception in NYC!

We’ve all seen images of the Gulf Oil Spill [2] – filmy waters, desolate shorelines and blackened, lifeless animals — but what about the lives and livelihoods that have been destroyed? On October 15th at the 99% Gallery [3], Inhabitat will present Mired in the Bayou [4], a brand new mixed-medium exhibit premiering in New York City [5]. Mired in the Bayou [4] presents a thought-provoking portraiture project, audio narratives, and objects from the coast that reveal how the BP Spill [2] has impacted and continues to impact individuals in the community of Bayou La Batre, Alabama‚Äôs once lucrative seafood capital. Watch our trailer above for a sneak peek into the exhibit and some behind the scenes footage of the project being made. You can also read about it here [4]!

OPENING RECEPTION: October 15, 2010, 7-10 PM

LOCATION: 99% Gallery, 99 North 10th, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY 11211
