Join museum teaching artists as we celebrate our Haitian cultural festival and make our own colorful doorways! In 2015, artist and activist Duval Pierre made it his mission to strengthen the spirit of the Jalouzi community, whose land was devastated by the 2010 earthquake. To date, with the help of community members, over 1,000 city structures have been restored and painted in all the dazzling colors of the rainbow. Pierre’s mission was to ignite hope within his community through color and collaboration. Visit Fine Arts to learn more about this community and others like it in the beautiful country of Haiti.
