To honor Black History month the gallery is presenting an exhibition of Haitian paintings including emerging artists residing in Miami, Florida.
Haiti became the world’s first black-led republic when it gained its independence from French colonial control and slavery in 1804. This country has faced many hurdles throughout its history from political unrest, natural disasters, extreme economic hardships and poverty, Cholera outbreaks and a more recent spike of gang violence. This art show commemorates the talent of the Haitian people, who have a strong resilience to survive and stay hopeful in the midst of all adversities. Haiti is a country so rich in culture and history, and we hope to showcase this reality through the vitality of Haitian Art.
10% of all proceeds are donated to Food For the Poor’s feeding programs in Haiti. Food For The Poor is a 501 c(3) non-profit organization that started its mission in Haiti in 1986. Today, the organization is one of the country’s largest providers of emergency relief and sustainable development projects.
