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!


Indigo Arts is proud to represent artworks from a number of prestigious art collections.

Rudi Stern Collection

Indigo Arts is fortunate to represent a portion of the collection of the late multi-media artist and filmmaker Rudi Stern.  The works shown here were collected during the six years that Stern lived in Haiti in the 1980s and 1990s.  During that time Stern made 14 documentary films, including Haiti: Killing the Dream in 1992.

Nancy Josephson Collection

Nancy Josephson, a New York City native born in 1955, gave up a career as a musician to create art that embodies Haitian themes. A spiritual follower of Vodou, Josephson traveled to Haiti a dozen times in the past decade to prepare for her initiation as a Vodou priestess. LaSiren, who embodies the ocean's dual qualities of strength and serenity, is her "met tet," or "head" spirit.

Judy Hoffman - Art Creation Foundation for Children

Judy Hoffman founded the non-profit Art Creation Foundation for Children in Jacmel, Haiti in 1999.  This year Judy has offered a collection of fine Haitian drapo (Vodou flags) and paintings for sale.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated for the benefit of this inspiring foundation, which states its mission as  "EMPOWERING STUDENTS TO CHANGE THEIR WORLD THROUGH ART".

The Virgil Young Collection

We are pleased to be able to offer for sale a selection of vintage vodou flags, bottles and other artifacts from the famed Virgil Young Collection. The late Virgil Young was a visionary collector, who collected the art and artifacts of Haitian Vodou at a time when few others were interested. He collected in Haiti, for the most part directly from the Vodou temples, from about 1980 to 1993.
