#3122: Notes from Haiti art display
From: Michele M Percy <email@example.com>
Some friends and I traveled to Tampa to see the Haitian art on display at
the Tampa Museum of Art. It was wonderful and a taste of some things you
don't get to see on just your usual trip to Haiti. I haven't been able to
get to any of the museums while there but enjoy the colorful art and have a
number of pieces in my home, sculptures probably from oil drums, clay and
paintings. Haitian art is distinct from any other I have ever seen.
While in Key West I ran across a shop were the owner had some wonderful
works from Haiti on display, he was in a building with a number of other
shops near Duval St. He said he travels to Haiti several times a year and
has for a number of years. His prices were very good and the works he had
were wonderful. I only wish I had thought to remember his name!
