Katrina Dinner

Justin Lundgren, the photographer behind the "Greetings from New Orleans" art project, in which he randomly left custom postcards about the city to see if people would pick them up and mail them - most cards did get to their destination - is working on something new.

He's hoping that come Aug. 29 - the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina - residents of New Orleans still scattered about the country will sit down for a ritual dinner celebrating the gumption and history of the Crescent City.

Toward that goal, he's created a Web site where he provides rituals, readings and recipes, along with a list of musical selections, he sees as fitting for his proposed "Katrina Dinner." The site also provides a link to the "Greetings from New Orleans" project, a bright reminder of what temporarily has been lost in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
