The Ghetto Biennale online

Now online is PRI's Christmas day edition of "The World," which included my report on the Ghetto Biennale in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

If you are visiting from "The World" and want more, scroll down a couple of posts for additional images and commentary from Port-au-Prince's Grand Rue. I'll happily address any questions left in the comments.

Great stuff, Rich. right up my 'rue' ...
and looks like you are getting some mileage out of it.
Was this a first, and will it be repeated?
What I'd give to walk that place at night with a flashlight, and perhaps some good sneakers...

Soeur Katherine and I just listened to the program with intense interest and delight. Both the concept of the Beinnale and the individual constructs featured in your photographs reek of brilliance. From the artistic no less than the ecological point of view this is an idea with a big future. And thanks to your great reporting, we were there to learn about it early.

That's absolutely a sculpture by the artists of the Grand Rue. If you search my blog or click the Grand Rue tag at the bottom of that post you will see many more examples. I don't know the exact date of that sculpture, but it was certainly done within the last five years.
