One Block Party 

click to enlarge events_rec-1.jpg

Photographer Dave Anderson chronicled the post-Katrina rebuilding of a single block in the Lower 9th Ward over the course of four years. One Block is a solemn but beautifully photographed tribute to neighbors who slowly but surely rebuilt their homes. Aperture, a New York-based nonprofit that specializes in photography, is publishing the book, which includes an introductory essay by Gambit columnist Chris Rose. Photos from the project will be unveiled at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art on Thursday. Sponsored by the Oxford American, the block party is near the book's subject, and entertainment includes music by the Rebirth Brass Band and Little Freddie King. Free admission. — Will Coviello
