Katrina Memorial

Completion: August 29, 2009

Minyard instead imagined "a final resting place worthy of what happened to them." He wanted the memorial to have the dignity of place like Maya Lin's National Vietnam Veterans' Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Minyard enlisted a memorial committee, including Dr. Jeffrey Rouse, who had a design vision. In what he calls "a brief and unusual moment of creativity," Rouse rough-sketched a curving, concentric form, befitting a curving city, that draws visitors to the center, like a "labyrinth for meditative walks." Then, he reasoned, "why not make a labyrinth out of the shape of the hurricane? That way we can create a healing shape out of the form that brought us such pain."
