Fragile Land: Rotunda, Artist Michel Varisco
Location: Popp's Fountain, New Orleans City Park

Artist's Statement: “Site specific response is very important to my work. Popp’s fountain, a 1934 Work’s Progress Administration Structure was built during the great depression and has survived disasters both man-made and natural. In this respect it echoes themes of my work; the dance of fragility, decay, dignity and resiliency” said Michel Varisco, a native New Orleans photographer and sculptor.

Fragile Land: Rotunda is part of Art in Public Places, a series of nineteen site-specific projects by New Orleans artists, presented by the Arts Council of New Orleans in collaboration with the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
