Street artist Banksy hits New Orleans to commemorate the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina on August 29. Some of the pieces relate directly to the hurricane and its disastrous aftermath; others are targeted at the legacy of Fred Radtke, an infamous N.O. anti-graffiti crusader known as the "Gray Ghost" for his practice of painting over graffiti in gray paint—regardless of the color of the underlying wall.

“Three years after Katrina I wanted to make a statement about the state of the clean up operation.” -Banksy
