After the devastating earthquake struck Haiti on January 2010, Klode developed this exhibit to help support her homeland. "Kombit" is defined in creole (the popular language of Haiti) as the gathering of a group to ease burden and complete a diffcult task. Coming to understand the importance of art in man's life and it's theraputic role, Klde believes this important aspect of art can help Haitian survivors make the difficult transition and rebuild their lives. The awareness that Klode wants to bring forth is a new understanding about the importance and therapeutic role that art can play in man's life, its joy to the viewers and freedom to the artist.
