Masters of Haitian Art

May 7, 2004 to September 24, 2004

Paintings, Sculpture and Vodou Banners

In commemoration of the 200th Anniversary of Haiti’s independence as well as the 60th anniversary of Port-au-Prince’s Centre d’Art, Indigo Arts Gallery presents Masters of Haitian Art. In a time of political turmoil and great deprivation in Haiti, we pay tribute to the incredibly rich cultural and artistic heritage of the Black Republic with an exhibition of some of Haiti’s leading artists of the last sixty years.
