I am super excited for tonight's opening reception for Art & Life: The Spirit of Haiti at Palm Beach State College. I have some interviews lined up for tonight to learn more about art and life in Haiti, so I can share it with you. We have a pretty large Haitian student population so the excitement is definitely there.
I am going to interview Judy Hoffman, the president of the Art Creation Foundation for Children, a non-profit arts organization created for education and personal growth of children in need in Jacmel, Haiti. There is some of the children's art displayed outside of the gallery and will be sold for donations. Can't wait to buy some!!!
Luckily Judy lives right here in Lake Worth so I get to meet her and learn all about this great foundation. I hope one day I can visit them in Jacmel, Haiti (my next destination in Haiti to see!). Here's their website.
I did a pre-interview about the exhibition with the Curator Onajide Shabaka, and gallery specialist Karla Walter. Here's the video.
