Oak trees torn down by hurricane reborn in art exhibition

By The Associated Press - | Mar 26, 2022

CORRECTS YEAR TO 2022 "Kitsugi Sisters," by Amanda Youngblood, part of the Fallen Bienville Oak Exhibition presented by Mobile Arts Council on March 18, 2022, in Mobile, Ala. In an accompanying note, Youngblood explains that Kintsugi is a Japanese art form in which broken pottery is mended, turning cracks and flaws into features. Shortly after Hurricane Sally wreaked havoc on Mobile’s Bienville Square in September 2020, an idea emerged: Use the fallen wood to make works of art. The healing notion was straightforward. The wood itself, it turned out, was as complex as its history. (Lawrence Specker/Press-Register via AP)
