Haitian art exhibit opens tonight

A Haitian art exhibit will have a grand opening ceremony tonight.

A.C.T.I.O.N. Foundation, a cultural arts organization, the Broward County Libraries Division and Galerie d'Art Nader in Miami and Galerie Marassa in Haiti will jointly present the exhibit, Roots: The Idea of Modernity in Haitian Contemporary Art: The Works of Philippe Dodard.

The ceremony will take place at 7:30 p.m. in gallery six on the sixth floor of the main library.

A symposium, ''The Idea of Modernity in African Diaspora Art,'' will accompany the art exhibit from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Broward County Main Library, 100 S. Andrews Ave. It features several scholars from Florida International, Vanderbilt and Syracuse universities, along with other schools.

The exhibit will remain at the library through Dec. 3. It explores the concept of modernity in Haitian art through the paintings, sculptures and fine jewelry of Haitian-born artist Philippe Dodard. About 60 artworks will be presented.
