The documented history of Haitian art dates back to the 1940s when European artists and critics were stunned by the works of pioneering self-taught artists Hector Hippolyte and Philomé Obin. Since that time, the world of Haitian art has remained a vibrant and surprising kaleidoscope of social and religious traditions, elemental and academic techniques, and singular artistic visions always presented in brilliant color. This exhibition features a selection of 28 works by 21 artists. All of the works in the exhibition are from the private collection of Darrie and Larry Schlesinger. The opening reception for this exhibit is on Friday, May 6, 2016 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
