The Art Gallery at Eissey Campus presents “The Spirit Of Haiti,” January 5 – February 10th, with an artists reception Tuesday, January 10th, 5:30-8pm.

This exhibition will show an exciting cross-section of art done by artists of Haitian decent. In the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, Haiti continues to rebuild, and its people continue to live another day with the hope of a better life. The family and national ties among the Haitian people, both here and elsewhere in the U.S. are strong and resilient. Through artists we can see this strength of character and love of life.

Art and crafts by youth of the Art Creation Foundation For Children in Jacmel, Haiti, will also be on the exhibit. These will include papier mache, paintings, mosaics, and pieces from a special post-earthquake exhibition that links rubble, stories, and paintings.
