DESCRIPTION

Keeping Haiti in Our Hearts explores how art can be used as a vehicle for interpreting identity and heritage within the Haitian Florida Diaspora. The works of art range from traditional paintings
 by artists such as L’Overture Poisson, Jerome Polycarpe, and Nesley-Exumé from the Bryant West Indies Collection at the University of Central Florida and the Collection of Butler H. Smith, Jr. and Betty Ford-Smith in Sebring, to cutting edge contemporary pieces by artists such as Edouard Duval Carrié. Frantz Charlemagne, Jude Papaloko Thegenius, and Jerome Soimaud.

Curated by Henry Sinn, Crealdé Painting and Drawing Director Natalia Marques da Silva, Museum Studies Graduate student at the University of Florida
