Craft In America: Katrina's Refrigerators

  • Aired: 05/23/2011
  • 01:32
  • Rating: NR
After Katrina, 350,000 discarded refrigerators ended up on the curbs with magnets still on them! Chris Cressione is a New Orleans artist who collected magnets from the refrigerators and put them all over his car. Occasionally he'd run into the owner and ask permission to take the magnets. He was never denied. They loved what he was doing, which shows the sense of humor of the people in this city.
