Birdfoot, Mississippi river

Our second stop concerned Birdfoot. There were many pictures, videos, and brochures on display. Most of the pictures showed the Mississippi River and how it splays out into the Gulf. From the many pictures and videos one can see what goes on around the Delta such as the destruction from the hurricanes and the construction going on. Many people brought up the question whether this was considered art or more documentary. As we all know many people have their own interpretation on what art is, but I once heard that art can be anything that is put on a wall or on display for people to view. This museum can be a good example of such an interpretation.
