A 108 page catalog accompanies the exhibition. The Introduction to the catalog was written by Mr. Gary LaGrange, President of the Port of New Orleans. Additionally, Mr. Sean Visintainer, Curator of the Herman T. Pott National Inland Waterway Library, contributed an article as well as Ms. Julie Dunn-Morton, Curator of Fine Art at the St. Louis Mercantile Library. The beautiful catalog shows all of the works in the series with my narrative of my time on the water woven throughout. The catalog is $65 and can be purchased by check or credit card.
