Baron La Croix - Vodou Flag

Indigo Arts has moved upstairs to a space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I am still arranging things up here but I am open on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  I am usually in the building from Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 6, but it is definitely best to phone or email first. Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery is operating as usual.  
Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.

Fils Lafleur in 2009

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.
