Anonymous comment card written in response to an exhibit by artist Maxx Sizeler at 2426 Bradish Place on May 19, 2007.\r\n\r\nComplete text on comment card: \"I don\'t want people to lose their homes, but I wish PROJECTS would never come back to be a part of New Orleans\' landscape. They are NOT a good or humane solution to anything! They just make things worse (continue the same pattern!!!) I think project-dwellers should have their own apartments in nice, green neighborhoods. It would make ALL the difference.

Michelle is an artist who is currently rebuilding her house and studio in the Tulane/Gravier neighborhood. Through the use of interviews with neighbors, soundscapes, live music, drawing, photography, and sculpture, this event confronted the range of issues the community is experiencing as they revitalize this neighborhood.\r\n
