The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year and a half despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations.  I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take several weeks to arrive.  Please note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!

Born in 1965 in Port Salut, on the southern coast of Haiti, Fils Lafleur began making flags in 1987.  He has exhibited in New Orleans and Santa Fe.  A mural consisting of 32 of his flags depicting the different vévé symbols of Vodou was on display on the wall of the International Airport in Port-au-Prince when I visited in 2014.  I  understand that Fils Lafleur passed away soon after that.
