It's the Hurricane Ike Picket Project at Sam Rayburn High School in Pasadena. About 250 art students painted wooden pickets blown over by Ike's winds, expressing their fears and frustrations. The project was the brainchild of one of the art teachers as she was cleaning up storm debris.
"It was free, and it was a symbol of the storm," said art teacher Karin Stensrud. "It was just crying out to be painted."
Student Emelin Maza recalled, "The thought of not being able to return to my home scared me a lot."
The exhibit is in the school courtyard, but will soon go to the Contemporary Art Museum for a group exhibition.
