“Local Artist”
Catastrophe, hardship, disaster. What would your response be to the loss of your home, your belongings, your job?

Chris Cressione is a New Orleans artist who makes his living and supports his family as a waiter at one of my favorite restaurants, Gautreau’s. The restaurant has yet to reopen as of this writing in January 06 so Chris has spent the interim months being the house-husband to his wife, Lisa who works as a nurse.

He takes care of his two children and has a lot of free time to work on his art. In an inspired fit of creativity he invented a use for all of the refrigerator magnets he saw being left on the refrigerators people had discarded and left on their curbs for FEMA to pickup and discard. He began collecting them and putting them on his car eventually covering every surface.

120,000 homes in New Orleans and the surrounding suburbs were destroyed by Katrina when the city flooded. All of their refrigerators are or will be out on the curb. Every other home in New Orleans (population 480,000) lost their refrigerators to the loss of power and the lengthy evacuation period. So we’re talkin’ probably a total of 250-350,000 refrigerators out on the curb.

This was just too much material for Chris to ignore. Everyday, as he drove his kids to their schools and events he’d spot another fridge left out to be picked up and to his surprise the owners would also be discarding the magnets! Occasionally he’d run into the owner and ask permission to take the magnets. He was never denied. They loved what he was doing with them.

Since then, he’s gotten a lot of attention for his project and a great article by Chris Rose in the Time Picayune. which is how I learned of his mission. I thought is was a perfect fit with my STORM CYCLE show because it demonstrated the resilience of our citizens, their sense of humor in the face of disaster and our hopes for the future.

February 23, 1988 - February 19, 1999
The mighty “Fridge” chilled rivals while he embodied greatness and captured hearts. The first to break the $2 million mark in earnings, he won the CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS (GI) a record three consecutive times. Bred by Sonny Vaughn of Wayne, Oklahoma, he raced 34 times for Jim and Marilyn Helzer of Arlington, Texas. He was trained by Dwayne “Sleepy” Gilbreath and Blane Schvaneveldt and ridden by Bruce Pilkenton and Kip Didericksen (in the irons here). The gelding’s record stands 36 (22-8-3) earning $2,169,309. Sculpted by renowned artist Lisa Perry, the bronze is a gift from Refrigerator’s owners, Jim and Marilyn Helzer.
