Kat Fitzpatrick | Mapping a Modern MS

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Kat Fitzpatrick, an artist in Bay St. Louis, found resilience and hope in the midst of Hurricane Katrina. After spending thirty years in the community, Kat can speak to the growth that Bay St. Louis has undergone.

“Well, I think that young people have the opportunity to come to Mississippi at the ground level of a new wave of creativity and quality of life that you don’t find everywhere. I mean, I can walk at night, I can lie down and watch meteor showers in a vacant lot and feel absolutely safe at two in the morning. I love that. That is true freedom to me.”-Kat

This interview is part of the Museum’s Mapping a Modern Mississippi Initiative.
