Scrap House information
Artist Sally Heller designed this sculpture, built entirely out of found and recycled material, and dedicated it to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. A ruined shack that resembles Dorothy’s house blown off-track sits in a tree constructed from pieces of oil drums. Inside, a light shines for those seeking to return home.
