The Magic of Haitian Art: Expressions Beyond the Waves Reception
Start Date: 11/7/2019Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 11/7/2019End Time: 7:00 PM
Event Description:

The Magic of Haitian Art: Expressions Beyond the Waves is part of Collin College’s year-long 35th anniversary celebration. This group exhibition of selected artworks combines sculpture, paintings, and Voudou flags. Arranged to tell a story of not only the artist’s perspectives, but to reflect the people, environment, politics, religion, and daily lives of Haiti, these works offer a glimpse into the island’s culture.  Through the creators’ uniquely crafted works, which tend to have an expressive style and brightly saturated hues, the artists convey their messages about the spirit and strength of people in Haiti. Since the 1960s, collectors Glenn and Yvonne Stokes of Louisiana have acquired an extensive collection of Haitian artworks.. Their collection is primarily from the artists, collectors, and art galleries they came to know during a 20-year period. This traveling exhibition, curated with categorically consistent themes, focuses primarily on the human element in relation to the environment.
